Parakeet by Marie-Helene Bertino
Marked down for blue pen mark on lower left cover as seen in second photo.
The week of her wedding, The Bride is visited by a bird she recognizes as her dead grandmother because of the cornflower blue line beneath her eyes, her dubious expression, and the way she asks: What is the Internet?
Urgent, strange, warm-hearted, and sly, Parakeet is ribboned with joy, fear, and an inextricable thread of real love. It is a startling, unforgettable, life-embracing exploration of self and connection.
Hardcover, 240 pages.
Fiction, magical realism, dysfunctional families.
