Contemporary Magical Realism

“Strong Meat” in Sharp and Sugar Tooth: Women Up To No Good, edited by Octavia Cade (Nashville: Upper Rubber Boot Books, 2019).

“Don’t ever eat anybody but yourself” Ashley’s grandmother cackled. Ashley learned the lesson. Refused to eat anybody no matter how good dry, aged meat smelt when laid in a hot, cast iron pan. Now a celebrated chef, she catches her latest assistant examining the meat in her pans. A magically creepy tale of haute cuisine and ulterior motives.
