Just One Thing with Kim Magowan

We're doubly excited about this month's featured short story, "Amuse-bouches," as it's a collaboration from Michelle Ross and Kim Magowan. Kim is kicking off September's round of Just One Thing by letting us into a bit of the inspiration behind the story:

"The bit in the second section about grocery stores in low-income neighborhoods selling more cat food is true. My father used to work for Safeway, and I remember him telling us over dinner this piece of information, in the same suspense-building way Uncle Nick in the story does. He asked us if we wanted to know why. I remember being about ten years old and reflecting, Do I want to know why? I know the answer is going to be upsetting. And thinking, afterwards, I must use this in a story someday."
