The Room of Pickled Foods | Story by Leslie Greentree

Judge Alix Ohlin chose The Room of Pickled Foods as the winning story – these are her words.

“The Room of Pickled Foods” tells the story of a child’s first encounter with death—that ultimate pickled moment—in a manner both bracingly unsentimental and yet startlingly sad. Laced with great observational detail and natural, energetic dialogue, this story shows Ray’s eyes opening to the dark complexity of adult life as he begins to leave childhood behind.
