    DescriptionBird Eat Bird, Katrina Best's first book of short stories, is a funny, smart, offbeat and insightful collection that explores themes that are equally poignant and hilarious. A thirty-year-old woman who still lives at home anticipates the experience of a third date; a teenaged vegetarian supermarket cashier struggles to scan a package of offal; an inscrutable pelican in a crowded London park decides to try something different for dinner. These artful stories are tinged with social commentary and reflect their author in that they feature characters and sensibilities from both Britain and Canada.

    Review quote
    The Rover reviewed Katrina Best's short-story collection Bird Eat Bird. Best 'has mastered the art of quirkiness, deadpan humor and quiet desperation,' and the book 'is quite simply delicious, and reveals Best's knack for witty dialogue.' Insomniac author Katrina Best has won the Canada/Caribbean section of the Commonwealth Prize for Best First Book with her short story collection Bird Eat Bird.
