Menasha Public Library (Elisha D. Smith)

The book of goose, Yiyun Li - hardcover

Summary
"Fabienne is dead. Her childhood best friend, Agnès, receives the news in America, far from the French countryside where the two girls were raised -- the place that Fabienne helped Agnès escape ten years ago. Now, Agnès is free to tell her story. As children in a war-ravaged, backwater town, they'd built a private world, invisible to everyone but themselves -- until Fabienne hatched the plan that would change everything, launching Agnès on an epic trajectory through fame, fortune, and terrible loss. A magnificent, beguiling tale winding from the postwar rural provinces to Paris, from an English boarding school to the quiet Pennsylvania home where a woman can live without her past, 'The Book of Goose' is a story of disturbing intimacy and obsession, of exploitation and strength of will, by the celebrated author Yiyun Li."--, taken from book jacket front flap
