Although her father raised her with a deep respect for theelements, the sea, and the creatures living within it, he also left her to parentherself. With wit, love, and bracing flashes of anger, Creatures probes thecomplexities of love and abandonment, guilt and forgiveness, betrayal andgriefand the ways in which our childhoods can threaten our ability to love if we arenot brave enough to conquer the past.
Lyrical, darkly funny, and ultimately cathartic,Creaturesexerts a pull asstrong as the tides.
