Where the Crawdads Sing
A Gentleman in Moscow
Little Fires Everywhere
Delia Owens is the co-author of three internationally bestselling nonfiction books about her life as a wildlife scientist in Africa: Cry of the Kalahari, The Eye of the Elephant, and Secrets of the Savanna. Where the Crawdads Sing was her first foray into fiction and—to put it modestly—it totally shattered the literary world. It is a mesmerizing coming of age story with a bit of mystery, centered around a strong female protagonist who’s only ever been able to rely on herself. It explores the power of lonliness and truly transports readers to a lush marsh in North Carolina.
Delia is reading (and recommending) a historical fiction novel that has captured the hearts of millions of readers, a beloved bestseller by Celeste Ng, and a beautiful story about the refugee experience.
