' ... my Dad would say Detroit was no place for a guy starting out. Even if he didn’t know the first thing about it, he would say things like that. And it was alright, far as places go; made me think about how the apocalypse might leave things, with maybe a few more automobiles lying around.'

December's story is by emerging writer and Trinity College Dublin graduate Naoimh O'Connor. Taking place along the docks of Detroit, The Starter is a tale of transition, loss, growth and the art of baking sourdough bread.
