The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break
The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break
Sherrill, Steven

Five thousand years out of the labyrinth that held him captive, and as many years beyond the dubious bargain that set him free, the Minotaur finds himself struggling to negotiate the American South with the body of a man and the head of a bull. The Minotaur tries to balance the past, the present, and a looming future from behind the cook's line at Grub's Rib, where his co-workers know both his skill with a chef's knife and the sometimes dangerous nature of his horns. At Lucky-U Mobile Estates, the Minotaur lives in a boat-shaped trailer and shares with his neighbours an appreciation for a quiet lifestyle and a respect for auto repairs. The Minotaur takes a Cigarette Break is an effortless blend of the mundane and the mythic, a unique world in which kitchen work becomes high drama and meetings between legendary creatures almost pass notice. But strangest of all in Steven Sherrill's debut novel, everything seems to make perfect sense.

Some shelf wear.
