Staff Reviews


I love this novel. It's about a lonely housewife and the fishman escaped from a testing facility who shows up on her doorstep. It's a taut domestic drama and beautiful love story.

“This book, which New Directions has unearthed from the 1980s, is such a surprising, delightful gem. It's like a mix of Lucia Berlin's knack for character, dialogue, and tone with the sci-fi realism that's become so popular lately. A strange, beautiful book by a writer who's getting her rightful recognition (and who may have predicted the current avocado craze?!).”
— Jacob Rogers, Malaprop's Bookstore/Cafe, Asheville, NC
