One morning, Jessa-Lynn Morton walks into the family taxidermy shop to find that her father has committed suicide, right there on one of the metal tables. Shocked and grieving, Jessa steps up to manage the failing business, while the rest of the Morton family crumbles.

Kristen Arnett’s debut novel is a darkly funny, heart-wrenching, and eccentric look at loss and love.
