The title of the antinovel The Food in the Manger refers to the characters, to how they are in various ways abject and philosophically desperate, unable to figure out how to be or feel useful to...

This book is a place where the social pale is not a line, and not even really a white hole that everything darts and starves from – it’s just a haze, ungraspable cloud of a field of poppies – yet the characters want it – want to attain whatever is truly the social side of it – when they wake enough to want anything.

The characters are outcasts, stunted creatively and stunted in will to live or act morally, yet hopeful that in their near-nonexistence the deteriorated world can emerge from paralysis and shock and be made vital and vivid, stellated in forms of socialist anarchism. They are in awe at that which exists but also easily become frustrated and sardonic.< Less
