The Wallcreeper

Nell Zink

“Nell Zink is a writer of extraordinary talent and range. Her work insistently raises the possibility that the world is larger and stranger than the world you think you know. You might not want to believe this, but her sentences and stories are so strong and convincing that you’€™ll have no choice.”

Jonathan Franzen

Tiffany’s marriage is a bit unusual. She has casual sex with the local bodega cashier and she and her obsessive-birdwatcher husband might be eco-terrorists. She fears both “selling out” and the inevitable complications of not doing so; she hates to work but also hates depending on Stephen, who’s just as unfaithful to her as she is to him. When a car crash introduces an annoying injured bird – the titular wallcreeper – to their lives, it sets off a chain of events that force Tiffany to confront her life’s realities and inevitably, albeit very slightly, grow up.
