"Peeling apples for tartes tatin, an Ohio mother wonders how to exist in a world of distraction and fake facts, besieged by a tweet-happy president and trigger-happy neighbors, all of them oblivious to what Dupont has dumped into the rivers and what's happening at the factory farm down the interstate--not to mention what was done to the land's first inhabitants. A torrent of consciousness, narrated in a single sentence by a woman whose wandering thoughts are as comfortably familiar as they are heartrendingly honest, Ducks, Newburyport is a fearless indictment of our contemporary moment."-- Provided by publisher.

Long. Booker nominee. Stream of consciousness. And yet. Getting strong reviews as both readable and relatable. NYT: "A mother of four living in Ohio, has a cutting power of observation and a depressive charm."
