Former fashion model Christine Leunens serves up a messy bowl of sex, food and faith in Primordial Soup. Kate Lester lives in Florida with her sister and their batty Lithuanian mother, Olga, who feeds them offenses like rabbit with prunes (on Easter, no less) and will not tell them the facts of life. To say that Kate winds up with ""issues"" would be an understatement from her first orgasm (which happens during communion) to her first sexual encounter, she views her body with shame, revulsion and ignorance, imagining herself and everyone around her as meat. Kinky, grotesque and very funny, this is not for the faint of heart.
