Product Details


Literary Hub, A Most Anticipated Book of the Year

“Thank goodness for Kay Chronister, delivering the book that all the bog-wives need: a story about a family, a bog, and the connection between them.” —Drew Broussard, Literary Hub

The Bog Wife is a creeping, Appalachian folktale, an astute allegory for a decaying America, and a haunting, brilliant novel. This one is going to stay with me for a while.” —Paul Tremblay, author of The Cabin at the End of the World and A Head Full of Ghosts

“Five siblings in their decrepit ancestral home, raised to believe outlandish things, some of which might be true, must navigate a new way of existing in the world. It’s got everything: Gothic eco-horror, plant consciousness, an emotionally distant bog-woman mom, a lying tyrannical father, siblings pulled between twin desires of wanting to individuate and to be part of something larger than themselves. Soulful, suspenseful, expansive and emotionally complicated. I couldn’t put this book down, and I’m sure that it will haunt me.” —Katya Apekina, author of Mother Doll
