Susie Cagle (microcosm)
Nine Gallons is a comic tale of the author's efforts to participate in a Food Not Bombs chapter in the SF/Oakland area. As a volunteer Susie confronts resistance from friends and colleagues who question the motives of her efforts and even the overall ethics of this type of food activism. As a result Susie's feels at times hypocritical and worse; completely ineffective. Interesting questions are raised on a subject that I must admit I've never given much thought to, unfortunately, the answers are not so easy or apparent—Chris Auman
