It's New Year's Eve, the holiday of forced fellowship, mandatory fun and paper hats. While dining out with her husband and their friends, Bunny - an acerbic, mordantly witty and clinically depressed writer - fully unravels. Her breakdown lands her in the psych ward of a prestigious New York hospital, where she refuses all modes of recommended treatment.

Bunny passes the time observing her follow 'lunatics' and telling the story of what brought her there.

Rabbits for Food is a brilliant, brutally funny dive into the disordered mind of someone who sees the world all too clearly.

Propelled by razor-sharp comic timing and rife with pinpoint insights, Kirshenbaum examines what it means to be unloved and loved, to succeed and fail, to be at once impervious and raw. 
Rabbits for Food shows how art can lead us out of - or into - the depths of disconsolate loneliness and piercing grief. A bravura literary performance from one of America's finest writers.
