Taxidermy. Fans of literary fiction are those readers most likely to enjoy Kristen Arnett’s debut novel titled, Mostly Dead Things. Narrator Jessa pulls readers into the family grief following the death of her father. As the title indicates, there’s a lot of death around, and the taxidermy business is just one part of it. The prose is finely written, the characters complex and on the weird side.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
