"Is the mud puppy a living evolutionary link? Can Daryl return to her element or Ani escape hers? Erica Wooff's debut novel, a juxtaposition of the normal and the surreal, embraces science, suicide, art, neurosis and newts. As well as heralding a major talent, it puts Newport on the literary map."--BOOK JACKET." ;
