The Wallcreeper

Birds. Nell Zink’s debut novel, The Wallcreeper, is good on so many levels. The title refers to a rare bird whose habitat is Central Europe. Protagonists Tiffany and Stephen are rare birds as well: Americans living in Central Europe, unsure of whether the new habitat is suitable. There’s humor and good writing inside the covers of this novel, but like other rare birds, this will not satisfy readers who prefer chicken over other exotic fowl. I’m sure I’m not hip enough to “get” this novel, but I enjoyed the birdwatching experience, thanks mostly to Zink’s writing skill.
