Description:
Blandine isn't like the other residents of her building. An online obituary writer. A young mother with a dark secret. A woman waging a solo campaign against rodents, neighbours, separated only by the thin walls of a low-cost housing complex in the once bustling industrial centre of Vacca Vale, Indiana. Welcome to the Rabbit Hutch. Ethereally beautiful and formidably intelligent, Blandine shares her flat with three teenage boys she neither likes nor understands, all, like her, now aged out of the state foster care system that has repeatedly failed them, all searching for meaning in their lives. Set over one sweltering week in July and culminating in a bizarre act of violence that finally changes everything, The Rabbit Hutch is a savagely beautiful and bitingly funny snapshot of contemporary America, a gorgeous and provocative tale of loneliness and longing, entrapment and, ultimately, freedom.

Reviews
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.
