Mostly Dead Things

I’m not sure where I read about Mostly Dead Things by Kristin Arnett, but it’s been on a number of end-of-year lists. While, ostensibly a story about a taxidermy shop and a woman who has taken it over from her father who committed suicide, it is also a story of family, love, and loss. I fell into this story right away as it is unique and unusual, but the descriptions of blood and taxidermy-ing were a bit much and the main character careened around in life in a way that was challenging for me to understand. So, overall, this one wasn’t much to my liking.
