Death Valley by Melissa BroderLearn more
Death Valley by Melissa Broder is so many things all at once. A tale of desert survival with talking rocks, a mystical cactus and hallucinations all set under a backdrop of grief, existentialism and introspection. Darkly funny and at times bizarre, I haven't been able to stop thinking about this book since I finished it. A fantastic fever dream of a novel! -Sarah, Harry Hartog Marrickville
