Staff Reviews

Nominated for February 2020 Indie Next List! "A brilliantly clever novel, Weather tells the story of a Brooklyn librarian, Lizzie, as she grapples with the end of our world and the people she loves. Jenny Offill dissects our own reality to explore the absurdity and tensions of a looming apocalypse. Her dark, biting humor helps build razor-like paragraphs in a non-traditional format. The fragmented structure crafts a deeply atmospheric novel written with praiseworthy meticulousness. While tackling a subject so close to the hearts of many right now, Offill shows great empathy and relatability in the emotional toll we all are feeling.

February 2020 Indie Next List

“Brief and brilliant, Jenny Offill’s Weather doesn’t need page after page to trap us inside. Tearing through precision-crafted paragraphs, we willingly follow a Brooklyn librarian down a doomsday rabbit hole as she tries to limit the world’s damage to those she loves. On the express bus to the demise of civilization, find a seat next to Lizzie for a wild and witty ride through the storm raging across America. An astute and satisfying read.”
— Ann Woodbeck, Excelsior Bay Books, Excelsior, MN
