Lark and Termite
is a rich, wonderfully alive novel about seventeen year old Lark and her brother, Termite, living in West Virginia in the 1950s. Their mother, Lola, is absent, while their aunt, Nonie, raises them as her own, and Termite’s father, Corporal Robert Leavitt, is caught up in the early days of the Korean War. Award-winning author Jayne Anne Phillips intertwines family secrets, dreams, and ghosts in a story about the love that unites us all.

Book Description: Vintage, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Powerful and emotionally piercing. . . . A novel that conjures with poetic ferocity the unconscious, almost magical bonds shared by people who are connected by blood or love or memory." -Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "Anyone, male or female, who seriously cares about reading novels will find Lark and Termite to be intricately and beautifully composed." - The New York Review of Books "Phillips . . . [knows] how to bypass the reader's brain and inject her words directly into the bloodstream." - Los Angeles Times "There are books you recommend to everybody, and then there are books you share cautiously, even protectively. Jayne Anne Phillips's Lark and Termite is that second kind, a mysterious, affecting novel you'll want to talk about only with others who have fallen under its spell." - The Washington Post Book World "This novel is cut like a diamond, with such sharp authenticity and bursts of light." -Alice Munro " Lark and Termite is a category of story unto itself: mythical without being gooey; wry and terribly moving; as ornately contrived as Dickens, as poetic as Morrison, yet unselfconscious in tone and peopled with vivid, salt-of-the-earth characters who mostly accept the limits on life's possibilities with a shrug and another cup of coffee." -Maureen Corrigan, "Fresh Air" "A stylistic tour de force. . . . Pure, rapt poetry." - The Wall Street Journal "Fever-dreamy." - Entertainment Weekly "A jewel of a book." - St. Petersburg Times "Phillips returns to working-class lives in what may be her most tender, most compassionate book to date. . . . Extraordinary." - The Plain Dealer "Jayne Anne Phillips renders what is realistically impossible with such authority that the reader never questions its truth. . . . The fantastic dream that's created in Lark and Termite is one the reader enters without ever looking back." - The New York Times Book Review " Lark and Termite is extraordinary and it is luminous. . . . It is the best novel I''ve read this year." -Junot Daz "Electrifying. . . . Gorgeous, stunning." - Newsday "A narrative that is consistently inventive, evocative and uncompromising. . . . Haunting is a word much overused but Lark And Termite is exactly that: a novel whose elegant, lingering images are hard to shake from memory." - The Independent (London) "Remarkable . . . swings from spare to sumptuous. . . . An intricate, affecting portrait of a darker corner of the American '50s."- USA Today "Extraordinary and brilliant. . . . With its echoes of William Faulkner and its almost mystical exploration of love in all its forms, but particularly between siblings, the novel is a powerful and tender portrayal of a family that in the end proves literally unsinkable." - The Sunday Times (London) "Evocative. . . . Lark and Termite offers substantial rewards for readers who value passages of gorgeous, intelligent writing." - The Boston Globe "What a beautiful, beautiful novel this isso rich and intricate in its drama, so elegantly written, so tender, so convincing, so penetrating, so incredibly moving." -Tim O'Brien "A richly textured novel with a wondrous story at its heart about the many permutations of love and the complexities it engenders." - Sunday Herald (London) "Acute and elegant." - Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Moving and suspenseful. . . . Phillips weaves the characters' stories masterfully, touching on betrayal and forgiveness, war's horror, natural disaster, secrets of the past, the love and dedication of an extended family of friends, mystery and death." - The Miami Herald "Luminous and haunting and singular. . . . Because [ Lark and Termite ] deals with issues over which people have been arguing for centuries-family and war-the novel's raw immediacy is really quite spectacular. . . . Phillips serves it all up with a prose that sparkles and startles." - Chicago Tribune "Phillips reinvigorates and transforms the Faulknerian infrastructure.
