Winner of the 2014 PEN/Faulkner Award

Karen Joy Fowler, bestselling author of The Jane Austen Book Club, introduces a middle-class American family, ordinary in every way but one. What is the boundary between human and animal beings and what happens when that boundary is blurred are two of many questions raised in Fowler's provocative novel, the narration of a young woman grieving over her lost sister, who happens to be a chimpanzee.  One of the New York Times Book Review's 100 Notable Books of 2013 and named by The Christian Science Monitor as one of the top 15 works of fiction.
