A landmark literary novel, balancing
unbearable sadness and beauty in the voice of a witty, beleaguered
teen-ager whose family is destroyed by fundamentalist Christianity "Half
of our family, the better-looking half, is missing," Nomi tells us at
the beginning of A Complicated Kindness. Left alone with her sad,
peculiar father, her days are spent piecing together why her mother and
sister have disappeared and contemplating her inevitable career at Happy
Family Farms, a chicken slaughterhouse on the outskirts of East
Village-not the East Village in New York City where Nomi would prefer to
live, but a dull, oppressive town founded by Mennonites on the cold,
flat plains of Manitoba, Canada.This moving, darkly funny novel is the
world according to Nomi Nickel, a bewildered and wry sixteen-year-old
trapped in a town governed by fundamentalist religion. In Nomi's droll,
refreshing voice, we're told the story of her eccentric, touching family
as it falls apart, each member on a collision course with the only
community they have ever known.
