Description:
"An exuberant, wise, and darkly funny novel about love, talent, ambition,envy, and the bungled ways we try to connect and care for each other."--Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, author of The Nest
Meet Ivan and Prue: a married couple - both experts in language andcommunication - who nevertheless cannot seem to communicate with each other
Ivan is a tightly wound philosophy professor whose reverence for logic andorder governs not only his academic interests, but also his closestrelationships. His wife, Prue, is quite the opposite: a pioneer in theemerging field of biolinguistics, she is bold and vibrant, full of life andfeeling. Thus far, they have managed to weather their differences. But lately,an odd distance has settled in between them. Might it have something to dowith the arrival of the college's dashing but insufferable new writer-in-residence, whose novel Prue always seems to be reading?
Into this delicate moment barrels Ivan's unstable father-in-law, Frank, intown to hear Prue deliver a lecture on birdsong that is set to cement hertenure application. But the talk doesn't go as planned, unleashing a series ofcrises that force Ivan to finally confront the problems in his marriage, andto begin to fight - at last - for what he holds dear.
A dazzlingly insightful and entertaining novel about the limitations oflanguage, the fragility of love, and the ways we misunderstand each other andourselves, The Study of Animal Languages marks the debut of a brilliant newvoice in fiction.
