Read Sample

MITZI
Will she bring us food?

KABIR
Probably. Remember that one time we went for a picnic?! You don’t remember, you were too young -- but all the explosions had stopped for a few weeks, and she took us to the old zoo grounds, and she made us a kubbi, it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten...

MITZI
I wanna try it. Maybe she’ll bring it, and tabbouleh, too!

KABIR
And markook...

MITZI
And Coca-cola!

KABIR
Not Coca-cola. That stuff will eat your insides up like boiling lava.
