Suzanne McMinn’s CHICKENS IN THE ROAD!

HarperOne, Ekim 2013. World English


 Batı Virginia'nın kırsal bir kasabasına çocuklarımla beraber yaşamak için yerleştiğimizde soğuk bir geç sonbahar günüydü. Çiftlik evi yüz yaşındaydı, yerler karla kaplıydı ve evin ısı yalıtımı berbattı- zeminden bile, soğuğu hemen kapıyordunuz. O zamanlar on iki yaşında olan  oğlum kapıya doğru yürüdü ve dedi ki, 'Bu derme çatma küçücük eve biz ölelim diye getirdin.'

Böylece  eski aşk romanları yazarı Suzanne McMinn'in Batı Virginia'daki en berbat yollarından birinde başlayan vahşi yolculuğu, çocukları, gizemli ortağı ve kırsal mahalledeki ilginç komşuları ve bir çiftlik hayvanlarıyla kendi kendine sürdürebilir ilginç  bir yaşam biçimine dönüşür.



Suzanne McMinn’in CHICKENS IN THE ROAD!'una gelen övgüler;

McMinn] found her road to self-realization much rockier than she imagined, but ultimately very satisfying…in her heart-on-her-sleeve, nutty narrative, she had to face the necessity for her own self-sufficiency…In this enjoyable memoir, she learned by trial and error how to do everything from scratch.” – Publishers Weekly

McMinn here provides a lively, whimsical account of her adventures in West Virginia farm living…A memoir of a suburban mother's move to the country, this book is perfect for fans of McMinn's blog.” –Library Journal

Writing with the keen attention to detail of the seasoned author she is…Her honesty is matched only by her desire to both take full responsibility for her failures and share the glow of her successes. The recipes and craft how-to's provided at the end of the book open the door for all readers, experienced or green, to get a little taste of country life.” – Booklist

A mature woman’s heartbreaking, heroic, and hilarious coming of age story. To McMinn, life is a bold adventure, but only if you live it. And, boy, does she ever!” – Susan Elizabeth Phillips New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Great Escape)

Humorous and inspirational...a page-turning pep talk for anyone who’s ever wanted to quit their day job and do something different with their life.
