About this product
- DescriptionOn the grounds of a Caribbean island resort, newlyweds Deb and Chip-our opinionated, skeptical narrator and her cheerful jock husband who's friendly to a fault-meet a marine biologist who says she's sighted mermaids in a coral reef. As the resort's parent company swoops in to corner the market on mythological creatures, the couple joins forces with other adventurous souls, including an ex-Navy SEAL with a love of explosives and a hipster Tokyo VJ, to save said mermaids from the Venture of Marvels, which wants to turn their reef into a theme park. Mermaids in Paradise is Lydia Millet's funniest book yet, tempering the sharp satire of her early career with the empathy and subtlety of her more recent vels and short stories. This is an unforgettable, mesmerizing tale, darkly comic on the surface and illuminating in its depths.
