Product description

Review

"Extraordinary... astounding... amazing... one of the outstanding books of the century, so far." --The Irish Times

"In her latest novel, Lucy Ellmann doesn't just carry on as before: she doubles up, doubles down, and absolutely goes for broke. (...) Success? Failure? A triumph." -- The Guardian

"Resplendent in ambition, humour, and humanity. (...) In Ducks, Newburyport, Ellmann has created a wisecracking Mrs Dalloway for the internet age." -- The Financial Times

"A novel that rewards perseverance, is truly unique, and feels like an absence in your life when you finish it." -- The Observer

"Forbidding and magnificent... Ellmann has produced a domestic epic of modern American life in the Trump era." -- Prospect

"Astonishing. (...) A Molly Bloom for middle America." -- BBC Front Row

"Full of wit and intelligence... and one of the most intriguing, charming and genuinely funny characters I have come across in recent years." -- The Herald

"Is it any good? Oh my word yes. Reading it at this point in time feels like an act of human solidarity, a commitment to a world of truth and reason." -- The Literary Review

"A bravura feat: a stream of consciousness, a transcript of the world under modern conditions, and (as a consequence of Ellmann's fierce and succinct wit) very funny." -- The Scottish Review of Books

"Timely, fresh... and possibly one of the most important books of the decade." -- The LA Review of Books

"An impressive feat... Ellmann's 1024 pages put her male contemporaries in the shade." -- The Sunday Times

"Ulysses has nothing on this." -- Cosmopolitan

"A huge achievement." -- The Times Literary Supplement

"Hilarious, gigantic, jaw-breakingly delicious... Ducks, Newburyport contains multitudes. This is the book of the year and of the first couple of decades of the twenty-first century." -- Bookmunch

"A Joycean achievement... A colossal feat... Perhaps the most intensely real depiction of the life of the quotidian mind I've ever witnessed." -- The Spectator
"A wildly ambitious and totally unique masterpiece. ... [Ducks, Newburyport] stands out in the current literary landscape like an octopus on a sidewalk, a standing challenge to a literary culture that tends to produce quiet novels in the nineteenth century mold." -- Michigan Daily
"Ellmann adeptly riffs on a vertiginous range of subjects, all the while carefully avoiding the didacticism that would warp the novel into a soapbox or a gallows. Her heroine s anger burns cleanly, refusing the easy conflagration of self-righteousness. The cumulative effect is devastating. This is a powerful and deeply felt indictment of moral failure, a fearful, dazzling bloom of conscience. ... A grand, mimetic achievement." -- The Nation
"Delicious... brilliant... mind-blowing... There are novels, and then there are extraordinary novels truly unique, one-of-a-kind, sui generis terms that are often used as clichés but I assure you not in Lucy Ellmann's case, regarding her eighth novel, Ducks, Newburyport." -- Counterpunch
"Innovative, intelligent, and simply extraordinary" -- Lithub
"Effervescent... Ellmann has made a case that a richer, less regimented language leads to a more vibrant and capacious mind, and has thus crafted the entrancing Ducks, Newburyport into a celebration of all that words, and the minds they build, can contain." -- Chicago Review of Books
"Wondrous... A complex book about a complicated time. It reads like an outpour of humanity beckoning to be heard." -- Electric Literature
"A jaw-dropping miracle." -- Library Journal
"A remarkable portrait of a woman in contemporary America contemplating her own life and society's storm clouds... Brilliant." -- --Publishers Weekly
