In Sea Creatures, a riveting domestic drama by Susanna Daniel, a mother must make the unthinkable choice between her husband and her son.
When Georgia Qullian returns to her hometown of Miami, her toddler and husband in tow, she is hoping for a fresh start. They have left Illinois trailing scandal and disappointment in their wake, fallout from her husband?s severe sleep disorder. For months, their three-year-old son has refused to speak a word.
On a whim, Georgia takes a job as an errand runner for a reclusive artist and is surprised at how her life changes dramatically. But soon the family?s challenges return, more complicated than before. Late that summer, as a hurricane bears down on South Florida, Georgia must face the fact that her decisions have put her only child in grave danger.
Sea Creatures is a mesmerizing exploration of the high stakes of marriage and parenthood.
Críticas: An Amazon Best Book of the Month, August 2013: Susanna Daniel found inspiration for her second novel in the film Sleepwalk with Me, comedian Mike Birbiglia?s story of a sleep disorder so profound that he jumped out a motel window and woke up as he hit the lawn, cut and bloody. She wondered what it would be like to be the wife--or the child--of someone whose sleeping body did things that had profound consequences in the waking world. She conveyed these imaginings into a tangled, tenderly believable love story set on Miami's Biscayne Bay and surrounding canals--the scene of her debut, Stiltsville. A gorgeous story that spans the full experiential spectrum of romantic and parental love, artistic impulse, betrayal, sacrifice, and redemption, Sea Creatures satisfies on every level. -- Mari Malcolm
