This playful and exuberant story describes the antics of the residents of the foreign student apartments at Square City University. A new mixed residence policy is instituted in which every foreign student is required to share their single room (and a double bed) with one domestic student, each of whom is nicknamed after a type of fruit. After initially opposing the new policy, the students quickly warm to the new arrangement, and a series of gender-bending and homoerotic entanglements ensue. A cheeky and libidinous meditation on the productive and contradictory nature of binary oppositions and attractions, including foreign and local, sadness and arousal, pain and pleasure, empty and full, the story advances a queer “container theory” that overflows and transcends familiar categories and expectations of gender and sexuality.
