REVIEW: Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy Ellmann

YES this book is (almost) one 1,000-page sentence. It is also very readable and one of the best new novels I’ve read in a very long long time. Topics include (but are not limited to): 

  • Motherhood
  • Words
  • Baking (lots)
  • Loss
  • Love
  • Raising chickens
  • Gun violence
  • Donald Trump’s America
  • How to live with yourself when it feels like the whole world is falling apart…
