Praise

“A riotous, joyful, hilarious romp with the wild and the tamed, the living and the dead, Unlikely Animals is both a love letter to John Irving and a literary accomplishment in its own right. Annie Hartnett is the real deal, and Unlikely Animals is a triumph.”—Rufi Thorpe, author of The Knockout Queen, finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award

“I devoured Annie Hartnett’s Unlikely Animals. She’s created a beautiful menagerie set inside a troubled household and their small New Hampshire town; a delightful mess of tenderness, grief, and despair, but most important, hope. This book is a winner.”—Kristen Arnett, New York Times bestselling author of Mostly Dead Things and With Teeth
 
“No one is better at heart than Annie Hartnett—in the best, most layered, most complicated, and deeply human sense—and still Unlikely Animals stunned me. There are tame(ish) foxes, a ghost, a Greek chorus that speaks from their graves at the town cemetery, a cast of eccentric fifth-graders, and a deeply troubled, devoted, hilarious family—and every last one of them became dear to me. In a book rich with miracles, it’s this complexity and expansiveness of connection that feels most miraculous of all.”—Clare Beams, author of The Illness Lesson
