Publisher's Synopsis

'A meaty comedy with a bleeding heart, highly recommended for all animals who read'
Joshua Cohen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Netanyahus

Herschel Caine is a soon-to-be master of the universe. His hedge fund, built on the miracle of machine learning, is inches away from systematically extracting obscene profits from the market.

But on the night of 12 May, at his elegant Brooklyn townhouse, he has something else on his mind - the dinner party he and his wife have devised to woo their new A-list neighbours. When the evening fizzles, Herschel indulges in a devilish prank that goes horrifically awry, plunging him into a tailspin of guilt and regret. As his tightly constructed world starts to unravel, he clings to the moral clarity he finds in the last place he'd expect: a sudden connection with a neighbourhood dog.

In The Vegan, Andrew Lipstein challenges our notions of virtue with a brilliant tale of guilt, greed, and how far we'll go to be good.
