"Appetite" at Electric Literature, with an intro by Julie Buntin 

"'“Appetite” follows a family in the aftermath of the loss of their mother: each character fumbles through their different experiences of grief, trying to reconcile themselves with the fact that hunger goes on, that the body goes on, that they will go on. Claudia, the narrator, is so street-smart, so wise, that I kept forgetting that she was fifteen, and then the first sentence would come back to me — dead mother — and I’d remember why."
