‘When I open one of Sigrid Nunez’s novels, I almost always know immediately: This is where I want to be’ Dwight Garner, NEW YORK TIMES
Three strangers are thrown together in one Manhattan apartment: a solitary writer; a Gen Z college drop-out; and a spirited parrot named Eureka. The Vulnerables reveals what happens when strangers are willing to open their hearts to each other and how far even small acts of caring can go to ease another’s distress.
Smart, funny and provocative, Sigrid Nunez’s new novel explores the nature and purpose of friendship, love and art in our complicated current times.
