Rabbits for Food


Binnie Kirshenbaum


Bunny is sick to the back teeth of - well, everything, really, but especially New Year's Eve. It's nothing more than forced fellowship, mandatory fun, and paper hats.

And yet Bunny finds herself out at another New Year's dinner with her husband and a group of particularly irritating friends. It's really no wonder that this provokes an extreme action that lands her in the psych ward of a prestigious New York hospital.

Refusing treatment, Bunny passes the time chronicling the lives of her fellow "lunatics" and writing a novel about what brought her there. Her story is a brilliant, brutally funny insight dive into the disordered mind of someone who sees the world all too clearly.

Propelled by razor-sharp humour and rife with pinpoint observations, Kirshenbaum examines what it means to be unloved and loved, to succeed and fail, to be impervious and raw.

A bravura literary performance from one of America's finest writers.

Binnie Kirshenbaum is the author of the story collection History on a Personal Note and six novels, including On Mermaid Avenue, Hester Among the Ruins, An Almost Perfect Moment, and The Scenic Route.
