The Minotaur works as a line cook in a North Carolina steakhouse.


The Minotaur Takes a Cigarette Break

Picador, 2000, 313 pages



Five thousand years out of the Labyrinth, the Minotaur finds himself in the American South, living in a trailer park and working as a line cook at a steakhouse. No longer a devourer of human flesh, the Minotaur is a socially inept, lonely creature with very human needs. But over a two-week period, as his life dissolves into chaos, this broken and alienated immortal awakens to the possibility for happiness and to the capacity for love.


Southern litfic by way of Ovid.
