GIRL WHO ATE KALAMAZOO
- Our Price:
The Girl who Ate Kalamazoo by Darrin Doyle: Doyle has a flair for writing about family dysfunction with a twist. With a unique blend of realism and fatasy, The Girl Who Ate Kalamazoo is the moving story of the hauntingly beautiful Audrey Mapes, who began her illustrious "career" by downing crayons by the carton only to graduate to eating an entire city one bite at a time. With vivid, acerbic wit, Doyle details the life of the world's most gifted "eatist" through the eyes of Audrey's sister McKenna. Through her eyes, we see that the real tragedy of the Mapes story is not the destruction of a city, but rather, the quiet disintegration of a family who just didn't quite know how to love.
