Meet an epically dysfunctional family plucked from Greek mythology and dropped square in the middle of Fast Food Nation.
In Clay McLeod Chapman’s teaser cow King Minos is a cattle baron hell-bent on world beef domination. Queen Pasiphaë can’t stay off the sauce. Their daughter spends her days slinging burgers and huffing cow patties to get high. And their son? He’s the Minotaur — a half-man, half-bull monster that only a mother could love.
Toss in a twelve-step program, a couple of severed fingers, and a kid-hating corporate mascot in a plush suit, and you’ve got one deliciously disturbing dark comedy.
