    An Ohio mother bakes pies while the world bombards her with radioactivity and fake facts. She worries about her children, caramelisation, chickens, guns, tardigrades, medical bills, environmental disaster, mystifying confrontations at the supermarket, and the best time to plant nasturtiums.


    She regrets most of her past, a million tiny embarrassments, her poverty, the loss of her mother, and the genocide on which the United States was founded.


    But in Lucy Ellmann's scorching indictment of American barbarity comes a plea for kindness. Ducks, Newburyportis a heresy, a wonder, and a revolution in the novel. It is also unforgivably funny.
