With everything happening on Helen Peppe’s backwoods Mainefarm—ferocious sibling rivalry, rock-bottom poverty, feral male chauvinism, sexin the hayloft—life was out of control, even for the animals. Despite thechaos, in telling her family’s story, Peppe manages deadpan humor, an unerringeye for the absurd, and a touching compassion for her utterly overwhelmedparents. While her feisty resilience and candor will inevitably remind readersof Jeannette Walls or Mary Karr, Peppe’s wry insight and moments of tendernesswith family and animals are entirely her own.
