The Discarded Feast

The Discarded Feast

the discarded feast cover 93x140Seff and Alfonso, two servers working at a corporate Italian restaurant in Austin, Texas during the early 1990s, are a few missteps from destitution. When they learn that the restaurant management throws away an egregious amount of food every night, they steal the trays of discarded food and take them home, perfectly good meals otherwise destined for the local landfill. The young men later befriend some old folks on a delivery run--who they learn had young lives infinitely more interesting than their own--and they decide to give their newfound, elderly friends the food they have been collecting, with devastating consequences.

The Discarded Feast is a novella about a 21-year-old on the brink of manhood, trying to survive along with his roommate, working as waiters and barely making ends meet. Their story is told with heart, humor, and grit; their friendship is a testament to the good inside all of us, even during the worst of times.

The writing of Scott Semegran has been praised by bestselling author / Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Davy Rothbart as "Hilarious, poignant, and twisted." Award-winning cartoonist Emily Flake described the fiction of Scott Semegran as "Funny, sweet, dark, and sad, Scott Semegran's stories create a wholly convincing world of love, loss, and fear. His light touch with heavy subjects is a gift, and his forays into silliness are a delight."

That Little Devil

A Short Story by Scott Semegran

The shower of dirt clods hit the ground like tiny meteors. Rogelio reloaded his little hand with more clumps of dirt, dropping a few extra in his shirt pocket, and climbed up the side of the ditch to a superior vantage point. When he reached the top, he surveyed the makeshift battlefield that lay in front of him across the rocky bed of the ditch. An armada of plastic soldiers, miniature tanks, and grounded airplanes were poised for battle, waiting for Rogelio's inevitable onslaught, stranded in strategically frozen positions in the loose dirt.

Rogelio raised his clinched fist over his head. And in a matter of seconds, he managed to demolish every miniature representation of war with a few quick flicks of his wrist, and a war cry for added effect. Examining the damage from his dirt bombs, the thought of reconstructing what he had just destroyed for the third time made him uneasy. But he descended the ditch wall anyway, grabbed his empty bucket, and began filling it with the defeated soldiers and their artillery.

"I defeated the Arabs again," he boasted. "They are no match for me and my nuclear bombs, even with Nazis on their side!"
