HEAVY FEATHER Reviews HOUSEBOUND

An excerpt from Louise Henrich’s review:

This book slowly reveals secrets through objects and the power the characters allow those objects, details the rules that must be maintained to protect the secrets, and demonstrates the weight rules put on familial bonds, like an unbelievable snow pile-up keeping the front door shut.

Housebound contains death, but this is not its primary interest. This book obsesses over the miniature deaths we suffer ad nauseam, reminds us that we are constantly in a process of becoming unrecognizable to all of our former selves, as is everyone around us. For these deaths, there is honest grieving and a reminder that we remain accountable to every version we contain.
