History of Wolves

History of Wolves - Emily Fridlund The reader knows, right from the first page, that Paul dies.

We haven’t yet met him of course, not properly, but we will spend the rest of the book getting to know this cute, imaginative, loving but picky and temperamental four-year-old in between glimpses of the court case following his death; Linda’s school life; and Linda’s life between then and where she writes from now, at 37 years old.

Linda is not the easiest character to like, but on some level she will likely appeal to any of us who have gone through periods of loneliness, any of us whoever felt like they didn’t belong, and especially anyone who suffers from compulsions.
