Through a close examination of “pet food,” the chapter provides a narrative analysis of the novella and sketches out concerns it registers about the emerging structure of globalization. The chapter introduces Stephen Vincent as the publisher of her early works. Looking at drafts of the novella and correspondences between Hagedorn, the chapter discusses Vincent’s role in the shaping of its final form.
