Lobsters (Ogunquit, Maine)


Maine rock lobsters were less than $4/lb at markets this summer. Which means that we had two family feasts of 1.5lb lobsters. I was in charge of the cooking, which is often best with a little music to obscure the horrible sound of claws scraping on the sides of the pot of boiling water. They were quite delicious, especially because they were so cheap. Russell Banks has a great short story called Lobster Night, which explores cruelty, lechery, and what The Smiths called eating animals: Meat Is Murder.
