Notes:
Welcome to The Rabbit Hutch. An online obituary writer. A young mother with a secret. A woman waging a solo campaign against rodents. Separated by the thin walls of The Rabbit Hutch, a low-cost housing complex in the run-down Indiana town of Vacca Vale, these individual lives unfold. But Blandine isn't like the other residents of her building. Ethereally beautiful and formidably intelligent, she spends her hours reading Dante and dreaming about becoming a female mystic. Until, that is, three sweltering days in July culminate in an act of violence that will change everything, and finally offer her a chance to escape.

What an original, inventive, imaginative and brilliant novel. Its themes may be bleak - a dying town in the Rust Belt, loneliness and isolation, exploitation of the poor and vulnerable, and more - but the prose is sparkling and there is no shortage of humour. There are some truly bizarre episodes, and some of the short chapters could almost stand as individual short stories, but the setting within the apartment building (the rabbit hutch) and the character of Blandine are unifying forces that manage to hold the whole thing together. This novel will give you plenty to think about, as well as giving you a roller coaster ride as you hurtle towards discovery of the act of violence that is foreshadowed in its opening pages. Highly recommended.
