In Stoberock’s extraordinarily imaginative novel, four children live on a desert island where all the world’s waste washes ashore. They are tasked with the arduous, abject, and unrelenting work of feeding all of it to six insatiably hungry giant pigs. Moreover, a group of nameless and sadistic adults rule the island, and the children must hide from these uncaring hedonists at all costs. When a scared boy washes up in a barrel, the children wonder. Should he be fed to the pigs, too?
