Staff Reviews

I loved Dept. of Speculation by Jenny Offill, but it was unlike anything I’d ever read. I wasn't surprised to find the same kind of oddness about her new book, Weather. The main character, Lizzie, works at a library, and is asked to answer mail for a friend’s podcast on climate change. As the book progresses, Lizzie becomes more and more invested in the subject. At the same time, she is trying to help her brother who struggles with his relationships and addiction. The writing is sparse on the page, but every paragraph carries a hefty weight. Dept. of Speculation was named one of The New York Times Book Review’s Top Ten Books of 2014. I fully expect the same recognition for Weather.

February 2020 Indie Next List

“Brief and brilliant, Jenny Offill’s Weather doesn’t need page after page to trap us inside. Tearing through precision-crafted paragraphs, we willingly follow a Brooklyn librarian down a doomsday rabbit hole as she tries to limit the world’s damage to those she loves. On the express bus to the demise of civilization, find a seat next to Lizzie for a wild and witty ride through the storm raging across America. An astute and satisfying read.”
