Praise for Mislaid:
‘Nell Zink is a writer of extraordinary talent and range. Her work insistently raises the possibility that the world is larger and stranger than the world you think you know. You might not want to believe this, but her sentences and stories are so strong and convincing that you'll have no choice.’ Jonathan Franzen
‘Nell Zink might be the best living writer you haven't heard of yet.’ Emily Gould, author of FRIENDSHIP
‘One of the most exciting debut novels that will be published this year’ Guardian
Praise for The Wallcreeper:
‘The most exciting debut novel I’ve read recently is THE WALLCREEPER, Nell Zink’s mordantly hilarious story of sex, drugs, and birdwatching.’ Joanna Walsh, Guardian
‘Heady and rambunctious … Wake up, this book says: in its plot lines, in its humour, in its philosophical underpinnings and political agenda. I'll pay it the highest compliment it knows – this book is a wild thing.’ New York Times Book Review
‘THE WALLCREEPER is the best book of 2014 … Every page is an angular masterpiece’ Dazed
‘Peppered with witty one-liners, Zink's portrayal of a young American couple that moves to Europe is strange, hilarious, and utterly captivating.’ Harpers Bazaar
‘An instrument of delight, an offering of kinship. Like its namesake, THE WALLCREEPER is fleet, stealthy and beautiful. It’s a lifer indeed.’ New York TimesFrom the Publisher:
‘Nell Zink is a writer of extraordinary talent and range. Her work insistently raises the possibility that the world is larger and stranger than the world you think you know.’ Jonathan Franzen
Startlingly radical, dazzlingly witty, unlike anything that has come before – a box set containing the two most exciting novels published this year.
Virginia, 1966. The motionless deeps of the lake outside Stillwater College are being ruffled. Lee, a blue-blooded poet and professor, is determinedly fondling Peggy, an ingénue freshman with literary pretensions, in his canoe. So begins a long affair but the two are mismatched from the start.
The story that follows rocks the boat in every sense. Nell Zink’s hugely entertaining, totally unique Mislaid explodes the nuclear family and topples every foundation of identity – black and white, gay and straight, “normal” and very very strange…
Interlaken, Berne, 21st century. Several things happen after the car hits the rock. Tiff ceases to be pregnant. Stephen captures, like, the most wonderful bird – fleet, stealthy, and beautiful – a real “lifer”. And the wallcreeper, the wallcreeper says “twee”.
The Wallcreeper is nothing more than a portrait of marriage, complete with all its requisite highs and lows: drugs, dubstep, small chores, anal sex, eco-terrorism, birding, breeding and feeding.
