Two sisters have a radically different take on their parents’ relationship in this character-driven, emotional deep dive, which touches upon 1960s and 1990s New York/Louisiana and the Freedom Riders. Like the novelist at the center of the book, Apekina is unafraid of plumbing the psychological abyss for her art and, true to her title, trawls some gruesome and fascinating creatures. Still, Apekina’s compassionate treatment and brisk pacing make for a compelling, consistently enjoyable read.
