    Description

    The Rabbit Hutch is a stunning debut novel about four teenagers—recently aged out of the state foster-care system—living together in an apartment building in the post-industrial Midwest, exploring the quest for transcendence and the desire for love.  

    “Gunty writes with a keen, sensitive eye about all manner of intimacies—the kind we build with other people, and the kind we cultivate around ourselves and our tenuous, private aspirations.”—Raven Leilani, best-selling, award-winning author of Luster

    The automobile industry has abandoned Vacca Vale, Indiana, leaving the residents behind, too. In a run-down apartment building on the edge of town, commonly known as the Rabbit Hutch, a number of people now reside quietly, looking for ways to live in a dying city. Apartment C2 is lonely and detached. C6 is aging and stuck. C8 harbors an extraordinary fear. But C4 is of particular interest. 

    Here live four teenagers who have recently aged out of the state foster-care system: three boys and one girl, Blandine, who The Rabbit Hutch centers around. Hauntingly beautiful and unnervingly bright, Blandine is plagued by the structures, people, and places that not only failed her but actively harmed her. Now all Blandine wants is an escape, a true bodily escape like the mystics describe in the books she reads.

    Set across one week and culminating in a shocking act of violence, The Rabbit Hutch chronicles a town on the brink, desperate for rebirth. How far will its residents—especially Blandine—go to achieve it? Does one person’s gain always come at another’s expense? Tess Gunty’s The Rabbit Hutch is a gorgeous and provocative tale of loneliness and community, entrapment and freedom. It announces a major new voice in American fiction, one bristling with intelligence and vulnerability.

    Commentaires

    “Just when everything seemed designed for a brief moment of utility before its planned obsolescence, here comes The Rabbit Hutch, a profoundly wise, wildly inventive, deeply moving work of art whose seemingly infinite offerings will remain with you long after you finish it. Each page of this novel contains a novel, a world.”—Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything Is Illuminated

    “In The Rabbit Hutch, Gunty writes with a keen, sensitive eye about all manner of intimacies—the kind we build with other people, and the kind we cultivate around ourselves and our tenuous, private aspirations.”—Raven Leilani, author of Luster 

    “Tess Gunty is a masterful talent with a remarkable eye for the poetic, the poignant, and the absurdly sublime. The Rabbit Hutch unspools the story of Blandine Watkins and other inhabitants of a rundown building on the edge of the once bustling Vacca Vale, Indiana. A brutal and beautiful novel that both delights and devastates with its unflinching depiction of Rust Belt decline, Gunty’s debut is a tour de force that’s sure to top this year’s best-of lists.”—Lauren Wilkinson, author of American Spy

    when will we stop romanticizing pedophilia

    and simultaneously masking that romanticization as psychological exploration? otherwise, it would have been a decent albeit dry book

    Long and boring

    This story was confusing switching between different characters. The book is long and the story very boring. I made it half way, but could not force myself to finish it.

    N ot a good read (listen to)!

    Author should not have included herself as a reader; also the story is quite a bit overdone.

    Wish I had not paid for this.

    I tried…hoping it would improve… but had to quit. Never finished. Not one character appealed to me. Took too long for a story line.

    was not my favorite

    I did not hate the book but was not my favorite. I wish it spoke more of the struggles of young adults coming out of foster care

    Heartbreaking

    This brilliantly written novel is quite dark, very sad so be forewarned. The author accurately captures what happens to many youth who emerge from the foster care system with little to no guidance and support.

    Painting with different size brushes

    like a painting painted by different size brushes tells one story through different point of views the book is interesting. Certain characters are painted like caricatures but some others are made with deep passion and understanding. Not an easy read and sometimes the writing may not seem to make sense. hopping to enjoy more great works for this young writer in the future.

    Surprised and Delighted!

    Let me say first I love this ensemble cast of narrators! Also, I am surprised by this great story and easy read.

    I have given up on new author fiction, because maybe I have just become a snob. This new author deserves the hype and I wish her a long and dynamic career.

    Great story, easy read, sympathetic characters, and believable scenario.

    Looking forward to next book!

    Beautiful language

    This is a lovely, very beautifully written story. Not sure that the audiobook is the best format to enjoy it though. You should swim in the words printed on the page to really experience the author’s brilliance.

    She might be the author, but her reading of the book is not appealing

    I’m reading this book with great enjoyment, and bought it with an audible credit for long walks with my dogs. The author’s reading voice is truly disappointing, and not conducive to flowing with the story… I found myself turning off the AirPods and giving up on the audio version. Not a smooth, pleasant voice- too high pitched and squeaky.
