Joanna Rudge LongHospitalized with bronchitis and not wanting to go home to her self-absorbed mother and racist stepfather, Alice goes on a hunger strike that keeps her in the hospital, where she shares space with Rex, who has cancer. Pulling us ever more deeply in, the narrative spirals back to show Alice coming to his extremity, and forward to explore her strengthening bond with Rex. A trenchant and powerful fable.
