History of Wolves - Emily Fridlund

Staff Pick

Most remarkable about Fridlund’s History of Wolves is the energy and eloquence of the young narrator’s voice. 14 year old Linda is a social outcast living with her parents in the last vestiges of an abandoned commune in northern Minnesota. When an attractive mother and her young son move in nearby, Linda becomes young Paul’s babysitter and practically part of their family. After the husband returns, a tragedy that could have been prevented devastates the family and spoils the relationship between them and the young babysitter. Emotionally devastating and beautifully written, History of Wolves works on every level.
