Abstract:

Katherine, the winning and slightly disturbing twenty-three-year-old narrator of A carnivore's inquiry, journeys from literary New York to rural Maine and Mexico City trailed, everywhere she goes, by a string of murders. As the ritualistic killings begin to pile up, Katherine comforts and inspires herself by meditating on cannibalism in literature, art, and history, and examining a diverse array of subjects including the Donner Party and the fall of Dante's Count Ugolino. The story races toward a hair-raising conclusion, while Katherine, and the reader, close in on the reasons for her intrigue with aberrant, violent behavior.
