Clearing the Bones by Celeste Ng
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story is available on the BBC Short Story Podcast https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p061... read by Laurel Lefkow (Twitter: @laurellefkow ) .

An older sister questions her younger sibling's choice of partner.

****SPOILER ALERT ***** her doubts about John turn to an envious acceptance and a view of a different sister than she had guarded and taken care of when young, a meat eater now no longer a vegetarian.

ashramblings verdict 4* This is my first read of anything by Celeste Ng. I loved the double meaning ending as she views the meat in the butcher's  "How solid this muscle , how nourishing, how simple. You could live on this richness"
