Awesome. Love Taylor's writing and the content. Can't wait to read more of Taylor's works.

Bought it off craigslist for $5 and it was pretty good! Funny and ironic at times, well written, and interesting story. My favourite part is when the vegetarian takes a rebellious, extremist stance against his nagging self-righteous girlfriend and eats a slice of moosemeat roast. Plays are usually difficult for me to get into but this one wasn't, and I got through it really quickly. Pretty good read.
