Inhaltsangabe

Interlaken, Berne, 21st century. Several things happen after the car hits the rock. Tiff ceases to be pregnant. Stephen captures, like, the most wonderful bird - fleet, stealthy, and beautiful - a real "lifer".

And the wallcreeper, the wallcreeper says "twee". The Wallcreeper is nothing more than a portrait of marriage, complete with all its requisite highs and lows: drugs, dubstep, small chores, anal sex, ecoterrorism, birding, breeding and feeding.

Kritikerstimmen

"Zink's work insistently raises the possibility that the world is larger and stranger than the world you think you know. You might not want to believe this, but her sentences and stories are so strong and convincing that you'll have no choice." (Jonathan Franzen)
"The most exciting debut novel I've read recently is The Wallcreeper, Nell Zink's mordantly hilarious story of sex, drugs, and birdwatching." (Joanna Walsh, Guardian)
"Heady and rambunctious.... Wake up, this book says: in its plot lines, in its humour, in its philosophical underpinnings and political agenda. I'll pay it the highest compliment it knows - this book is a wild thing." ( New York Times Book Review)
"Every page is an angular masterpiece." ( Dazed)
"Peppered with witty one-liners, Zink's portrayal of a young American couple that moves to Europe is strange, hilarious, and utterly captivating." ( Harpers Bazaar)

Totally annoying reader

Sorry to say but I found the reader hard to bear. She decided to interpret the different roles by mimicking the different characters in a rather exaggerated way. There is admittedly a rather humourous aspect to the book. But it is way more subtle than its violent interpretation by Laurence Bovard. In my opinion a lot of the tenuous quality of the text is destroyed. It stopped me from listening to the very and. Couldn't stand it.
