Synopsis:

A Singapore emigrant muses about the HDB heartlands and her adopted British lifestyle. An undergrad gets culture shock travelling abroad to Canada for the first time. A vegetarian Western tourist finds a meatier version of Asia in a massage palour. A desperate male sniffs around a lone cougar. An expat wife seeks solace in a Kundera-quoting freelance artist. And a workaholic widower gets enlightened in his last days.

Grace Chia's Every Moving Thing That Lives Shall Be Food is a smorgasbord of short stories that tells of individuals whose appetite for a spicier taste of life is driven by hunger, human folly and unhealthy cravings.
