About the book

* The standout literary debut that everyone is talking about *

'Profoundly wise, wildly inventive' Jonathan Safran Foer, author of Everything is Illuminated

Blandine isn't like the other residents of her building.

An online obituary writer. A young mother with a dark secret. A woman waging a solo campaign against rodents - neighbours, separated only by the thin walls of a low-cost housing complex in the once bustling industrial centre of Vacca Vale, Indiana.

Welcome to the Rabbit Hutch.

Ethereally beautiful and formidably intelligent, Blandine shares her flat with three teenage boys she neither likes nor understands, all, like her, now aged out of the state foster care system that has repeatedly failed them, all searching for meaning in their lives.

Set over one sweltering week in July and culminating in a bizarre act of violence that finally changes everything, The Rabbit Hutch is a savagely beautiful and bitingly funny snapshot of contemporary America, a gorgeous and provocative tale of loneliness and longing, entrapment and, ultimately, freedom.

'Gunty writes with a keen, sensitive eye about all manner of intimacies_the kind we build with other people, and the kind we cultivate around ourselves and our tenuous, private aspirations.' Raven Leilani, author of Luster
