Eight top bunny books

The Zoomer Book Club's Nathalie Atkinson tagged eight books with a connection to the "rabbit, a symbol of feminine power, [which] arguably has connections to creativity, resistance and survival." One title on the list:
RABBITS FOR FOOD by Binnie Kirshenbaum

This engrossing bestseller from 2019 chronicles the breakdown of the lead character, Bunny, into institutionalization, beginning on New Year’s Eve. In the psych ward, she refuses treatment and instead chronicles the goings-on around her and somehow writes her way out of it. Over the course of the story, the author – a creative writing professor in New York City – manages to make the harrowing descent into clinical depression hilarious.
