Kristen-Paige Madonia was the recipient of our inaugural Marianne Russo Scholarship, and will be a Writer in Residence at The Studios of Key West this October. In this recording from 2008, she reads her short story, “Cheap Red Meat,” originally published in Pearl.
Every other Tuesday I buy groceries from the woman my husband is sleeping with. This is a new thing– knowing that he’s doing the grocery checkout girl. But every week I cut along the printed dotted lines of the coupon advertisements, and paper-clip them to my shopping list on Tuesday, because Tuesday is the big red meat sale at Stuff Your Sack.
