Now hailed as a contemporary American classic, Housekeeping is the story of Ruth and Lucille, two orphaned sisters growing up in the mean-minded community of Fingerbone, who find themselves in the care of Sylvie, the remote and enigmatic sister of their dead mother. Steeped in the imagery of a bleak and loveless landscape, this is a coming- of- age novel like no other and a powerful meditation on loss, loneliness and transience.

'I found myself reading slowly, then more slowly--this is not a novel to be hurried through, for every sentence is a delight.' Doris Lessing
