The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie

What a breath of fresh air The Portable Veblen is. Elizabeth McKenzie’s quirky account of a young woman whose obsession with squirrels provides her with some protection and diversion from her dysfunctional family (and her boyfriend) is one of the most truly original novels I have read for ages. Beautifully written, with well-sprung prose, the book is both a curiosity and a delight.
