9780062346032: Migratory Animals: A Novel (P.S.)
Review:

“An ambitious, highly accomplished debut. . . . Specht moves among a deep cast of characters and corresponding perspectives with absolute mastery. . . . Most important, and impressive, is Specht’s sure handling of the interior life.” ( Ben Fountain, author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk)

“Mary Helen Specht’s lyrical novel reminds me of the work of both Claire Messud and Barbara Kingsolver. . . . A luminous debut. . . . Rich with love and heartbreak, it’s the book I’ll be wanting to share with all my friends.” ( Amanda Eyre Ward, author of How to Be Alone)

“A novel of tremendous scope and insight that succeeds both as an exploration of larger global concerns and an acute examination of the most intimate parts of our lives. Mary Helen Specht is a terrific writer -- passionate and generous, wry and insightful. A very moving debut.” ( Molly Antopol, author of The UnAmericans)

“An emotionally nuanced debut. . . . The men and women of Mary Helen Specht’s imagination inhabit a world of breathtaking vividness, where life’s pains and pleasures ripple through to marvelous effect. A heartbreaking, edifying, and resonant work of art.” ( Keija Parssinen, author of The Ruins of Us)

“In prose as quirky and elegant as its characters, Specht proves that -- after confusion, missteps, even denial -- a village can embrace you. . . . This big, dreamy novel flies by as swift as time.” ( Debra Monroe, author of On the Outskirts of Normal)
