It's challenging to try to describe Enter the Aardvark. There are a lot of things that just don't belong together. A dudebro congressman fixated on the Reagan Era. A recusive Victorian taxidermist. A missing-but-not-really-boyfriend. And a stuffed aardvark that's seen it all. Nothing about this novel should work, and yet, in fewer than 200 pages, Jessica Anthony pulls it off. Pure alchemy. Simultaneously funny, heartbreaking, and beautiful. -Beth, Essex
