Don’t miss this London event to launch Rico’s novel Fowl Eulogies, published in English translation by World Editions at UCL on 30 June!
In this ‘dazzling first novel of malice and feathers’ (Elle) we meet Paule Rojas, a vegetarian city-dweller, who returns to the chicken farm where she grew up after her mother dies, to run the old family business… what follows is surprising, shocking and often very funny.
“The book is extraordinary! It’s a love fable. Disturbing, compelling, and heartbreaking, and—like some great magic trick—utterly convincing. I’ve more to say, about the warnings in the story, the soft horror of homogeny, about how things—endeavour, care, a species—mutate when taken from their natural place … but the story itself says it all much better. It’s brilliant.” CYNAN JONES, author of The Dig
