Kristen Arnett's Mostly Dead Things

Weekend Reads: Mostly Dead Things

Arnett's prose is unflinchingly detailed - from the sweaty and buggy Florida summer, to Jessa's taxidermy work, to her painful broken heart. This book is totally weird and totally worth it - not for the faint of heart but an ultimately rewarding read. Believe the hype! Johanna McIntyre's Books

This book puts a human face on it, with rich characters who could only have been created by someone who actually spent time in a refugee camp. (The author did.) Yet despite the dark nature of the subject matter, there is a fairy tale quality to this book, reminding us that hope,...
