COSMOPOLITAN FICTION PICKS 2019


Latticing one cherry pie after another, an Ohio housewife tries to bridge the gaps between reality and the torrent of meaningless info that is the United States of America. She worries about her children, her dead parents, African elephants, the bedroom rituals of 'happy couples', Weapons of Mass Destruction, and how to hatch an abandoned wood pigeon egg. Is there some trick to surviving survivalists? School shootings? Medical debts? Franks 'n' beans? A scorching indictment of America's barbarity, past and present, and a lament for the way we are sleepwalking into environmental disaster, Ducks, Newburyport is a heresy, a wonder - and a revolution in the novel.

“A 900-page novel in a single sentence? If that sounds like your kind of thing (and if it does, I like you already), then look out for Ducks, Newburyport, a wildly ambitious and righteously angry portrait of contemporary America.”– OBSERVER FICTION PICKS, 2019

“a bravura feat: a stream of consciousness, a transcript of the mind under modern conditions, and (as a consequence of Ellmann’s ferocious and succinct wit) very funny.” – SCOTTISH REVIEW OF BOOKS FICTION PICKS, 2019

"Extraordinary... astounding... amazing... The fact that this isn't just one of the outstanding books of 2019, it's one of the outstanding books of the century, so far." Irish Times

“Radical..powerful..delightful..a triumph” - The Guardian

“ This is a novel that rewards perseverance, is truly unique, and feels like an absence in your life when you finish it” – Observer

“Ulysses has got nothing on this.” — Cosmopolitan

“Hilarious, gigantic, jaw-breaking, delicious” - Bookmunch

“Full of wit and intelligence… one of the most charming and genuinely funny characters I have come across in recent years” - The Herald
