Product Details


Brood, which chronicles a year of grief subsumed through care, abounds in wit, charm, and the very mystery of being.”
Joy Williams, author of The Visiting Privilege

“I have never read a book like this one. So much is unsaid, and that is where the true beauty of this novel lies, between the lines, even as the lines themselves sing. Written with such delicacy, such elegance, the prose made me feel that the narrator has opened her heart to me, even as she withholds so much. This was a book about everything—joy and love and beauty and loss. Marriage and motherhood and friendship and grief. All brought to life through the story of a little backyard flock. I was surprised at every turn, moved to laughter and tears both—I could not put it down.”
Emily Ruskovich, author of Idaho

“This is the most wonderful book! Acutely observed and flawlessly conveyed. Completely original, full of surprise, humor, grief, and wisdom and just the right amount of chickens. I am hugely on board with Brood.”
Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
