The south Wales Valleys, 23rd June, 2016. It’s
another long day chopping beef carcasses up at the
slaughterhouse for former reality TV star and Iron Man
contender, Caleb Jenkins, whose untroubled world
unravelled when his old man’s carpet business went
bust last year, another casualty of the global financial
crisis. While he’s busy trying to manage the well-
being of his conspiracy-theorist brother, the mortgage
keeping a roof over his bankrupt parents’ heads, his own
excruciating grief, internal rage and impossible credit
score, politicians of all persuasions are promising the
scared and voiceless people around him real change.
Desperate for acknowledgement and a transformation
he can’t quite bring about by his own means, Caleb is
on the edge.
Easy Meat is a glimpse of a young man and a country on
the verge of a momentous decision.
