Product Information

'The Convalescent is a fleshly fable spinning in and out of its own enormous, fabulous history. It is lush, cranky, and powered by dark, sweet humor. Mesmerizing. And a lot of fun.' - KATHERINE DUNN 'Jessica Anthony is a writer possessed of mind-blending talents.' - HEIDI JULAVITS 'A blissfully nutty, brainy, ribald, brilliantly imaginative ide to human loneliness, oddity, and persistence.' - FRANCISCO GOLDMAN
