A Field Giude to the North American Family.
An Illustrated Novella.
Text by Garth Risk Hallberg. Numerous contributing photographers.
Mark Batty, New York, 2007. 144 pp., Color illustrations throughout, 7x9".
For years, the Hungates and the Harrisons have coexisted peacefully. But when the patriarch of one family dies, a chain reaction brings Bad Habits, Secrets, and Vulnerabilities to the surface. The survivors face a stark imperative: adapt or face extinction.
A Field Guide to the North American Family, an illustrated novella by Garth Risk Hallberg, tracks these two families through the wilderness of modern life. Their stories unfold in 63 entries, each comprising a chapter of text and a visual artist’s response to the entry’s title: 'Adolescence,' 'Boredom,' 'Chemistry,' 'Commitment….' The novella can be read straight through; alphabetical headings and cross-referenced design also enable users to peruse the Field Guide as they would a nonfiction reference work, or to move through the fiction as they see fit.
