Product description


"Brilliant, funny, original . . . also creepy and sinister . . . Karen Russell's Swamplandia! is every bit as good as her short stories promised it would be. This book will not leave my mind." (Stephen King)

"A wonderfully fertile novel by an unfairly talented writer." (Joseph O'Neill, author of Netherland)

"A gorgeous and wrenching portrait of sibling love in all its helpless and furious and panicked indefatigability, and of one girl's determination to do what she can to hold what's left of her family together." (Jim Shepard, author of Like You'd Understand Anyway)

"I can't recall the last time I came across a character who shines as brightly as Ava, or a first novel that made such a rich and lasting impression." (Carl Hiaasen)

"The novel is an experiment in how children’s minds comprehend loss, and Ava is a compelling guide…Russell’s strength is her use of language: each sentence is vividly rendered and the pages are as dense with images as the island is with life." (Fiona Wilson The Times)

Book Description

A triumphant debut novel and follow-up to Karen Russell's universally acclaimed short story collection St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves.
