All The Little Animals I Have Eaten
Written by Karen Hines
All the Little Animals I Have Eaten tracks a thesis- addled, sleep-deprived film student as she serves local charcuterie to a well-heeled crowd at an unusually modern bistro. Over the course of a harrowing shift, she finds herself parsing some very female conversations about everything from plagiarism and polity to narcissism and killer-trolls, to spiritual transcendence and the Golden Retriever Convention in Scotland. The conversation does turn to shoes ... but it’s only when the food starts to speak that our hero really starts to listen.
