This blockbuster debut novel by wildlife scientist Delia Owens landed on The New York Times Best Seller list just a few weeks after its publication in August 2018, reaching Number One by January 2019 and then spending over 20 weeks in the top spot during 2019. Its two plots are an intertwining of a coming-of-age story and a murder mystery in the context of naturalist writing centered on the marshes and swamps of North Carolina. Chris Schluep wrote in Amazon Book Review: “This novel has a mystery at its core, but it can be read on a variety of levels. There is great nature writing; there is coming of age; and there is literature. Crawdads is a story lovingly told…You’ll want to relax and take your time as well, and when you’re done you will want to talk about it with another reader.”
