The summer tomatoes had no choice but to rot. The mother ducks lost their heads. The chai had to be sent in the mail. In Nina Katz’s first book of essays, a short memoir of queer love, longing, and letting go unfolds. Complemented by recipes from Katz’s home kitchen, their deeply personal and absorbing writing logs a relationship that sunk them into a never ending stomach ache. 

Weaving together the author's curious fixations, stubborn devotions, and a drive to nourish those around them, Squelch includes stories of taking precious culinary cargo through airport security, meditations on parenthood amidst a day of butchering, heroic feats in the Goya aisle, and desire as red as tomato purée.

Stepping into the sugary mud of love is one thing - stepping out of it is another.
