Description

Darkly witty, deeply moving – Jackie Polzin’s Brood is a startlingly original debut novel about motherhood, marriage and grief, full of sorrow, joy and unrelenting hope. Over the course of a single year, our nameless narrator heroically tries to keep her small brood of four chickens alive despite the seemingly endless challenges that caring for another creature entails – and all the while struggling to confront her own recent loss. From the forty-below nights of a brutal Minnesota winter to a sweltering summer which brings a surprise tornado, she battles predators, bad luck, and the uncertainty of a future that may not look anything like the one she always imagined.
