From Nine To Noon, 10:37 am on 29 November 2019

Melanie O'Loughlin from Unity Books reviews Rabbits for Food by Binnie Kirshenbaum, which is published by Serpent's Tail. New Year's Eve 2008, and Bunny, a successful writer under the spell of clinical depression, is at dinner with friends. She wonders how long she can take five people discussing the merits of balsamic vinegar. It turns out not long. What comes next lands her in the psych unit of a prestigious New York hospital. Razor-sharp comic timing illuminates mental illness, love and relationships in the best possible way.
