Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times, and Chicago Tribune Best Book of the Year

In these ten glittering stories, debut author Karen Russell takes us to the ghostly and magical swamps of the Florida Everglades. Here wolf-like girls are reformed by nuns, a family makes their living wrestling alligators in a theme park, and little girls sail away on crab shells. Filled with stunning inventiveness and heart, St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves introduces a radiant new writer.

Synopsis:

A debut anthology of short stories, set against the backdrop of the Florida Everglades, features original tales, including "Haunting Olivia," "Z.Z.'s Sleepaway Camp for Disordered Dreamers," "Out to Sea," and the title story, about fifteen young girls who had been raised by wolves and who are painstakingly re-educated by nuns. A first collection. Reprint.

In the wake of my husband's long illness I had lost all interest in reading for pleasure. One day a Daily Dose customer review of this book piqued my curiosity. What a treat for the senses! Each story is a solitary jewel in an individually crafted setting. The prose is lyrical, full of delicate surprises and indelible imagery. Best of all, for an omnivorous reader, it never was predictable. At no time can the reader 'see around the corner' and be prepared for what comes next. Well worthy of a wider audience!
