A Novel

Bookseller Recommendation

A Room Called Earth

“A stream-of-consciousness, but so much more. Every moment of narration by our raconteuse anonyme meditates in the sensory, in the simple-yet-profound act of accepting and appreciating what is. Over the course of a few hours preparing for and then attending a party on a lush summer night, no conversational or conceptual stone remains unturned, and the reader is mused to about anything from the plants in the garden, to what soured a relationship, to what it means to be Australian, or just, an inhabitant on this multiplicitous planet.”

Description

One of Bustle's Best Books of 2020! 

An unforgettable story of a fiercely original young woman, whose radical perspective illuminates a new way of being in the world


As a full moon rises over Melbourne, Australia, a young woman gets ready for a party. And what appears to be an ordinary night out is--through the prism of her singular perspective--extraordinary. As the evening unfolds, each encounter she has reveals the vast discrepancies between what she is thinking and feeling, and what she is able to say. And there's so much she'd like to say. So when she meets a man and a genuine connection occurs, it's nothing short of a miracle. However, it isn't until she invites him home that we come to appreciate the humanity beneath the labels we cling to, and we can grasp the pleasure of what it means to be alive.

The debut novel from the inimitable Madeleine Ryan, A Room Called Earth is a humorous and heartwarming adventure inside the mind of a bright and dynamic woman. This hyper-saturated celebration of love and acceptance, from a neurodiverse writer, is a testament to moving through life without fear, and to opening ourselves up to a new way of relating to one another.
