Utility Monster

by Marina Keegan '12

Monster
Utility Monster opens with 15-year-old Claude giving a PowerPoint presentation about how five dollars can save an African child’s life. And about Led Zeppelin. But mostly about the Africans. Soon he meets Sadie, who brings him home to her wealthy family: a mother, Ruth, who has pancreatic cancer, and a brother, Caleb, who loves his little sister, his electronic band and smoking pot. Together, Sadie and Claude hatch an ill-conceived plan to secretly sell paintings done by her late father and to give the proceeds to Oxfam International. Meanwhile, Ruth goes to the hospital to struggle with her illness, her book-in-progress, and her strange relationship with her husband’s brother, leaving the household in Caleb’s hands. Shit goes down and things get serious…but it’s funny!
