The Book Club book

Where the Crawdads* Sing tells the story of sensitive and intelligent Kya Clark who lives outside society in the marshlands (* a crawdad is an American word for a freshwater crayfish - like a large prawn!)   When in late 1969, Chase Andrews is found dead, the local people instinctively suspect the marsh girl of the crime.

But Kya is not an ignorant wild child - she is a born naturalist, who has learnt about life from nature.  But Kya starts to need the company of others and the novel asks how isolation influences the behaviour of this young woman.   

Thought-provoking, moving, and wise, Owens helps us to remember that child we once were and the shaping that happens as we grow up, in a background of the constantly changing natural world. But the book is also a murder mystery.  Highly recommended!

"A rare achievement" The Times

"Vivid and original" The Guardian

"A painfully beautiful first novel"  The New York Times Book Review

Geoff says:

"This is a very interesting book to discuss. It is a historical novel set in the 1950s and 60s with two parallel narrative time lines. The book is hard to classify - is it a coming of age story?  A murder mystery? A meditation on nature and our place in it?  The truth is that it is all of these.  Readers around the world have fallen in love with this, the debut best-selling novel from Delia Owens who spent many years as a wildlife scientist in Africa."
