Brightfellow, Rikki Ducornet
Writer, poet, and artist Ducornet does things with words most authors would never even dream of. (She was also the inspiration for the Steely Dan song "Rikki Don’t Lose That Number.") Her new novel tells the story of Stub, a teenage orphan who pretends to be a student at a local college, and soon finds a bizarre, adopted family of his own. It’s a novel that's bizarre, engaging, and dark as hell.
