Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy EllmannLATTICING one cherry pie after another, an Ohio housewife tries to bridge the gaps between reality and the torrent of meaningless info that is the United States of America. She worries about her children, her dead parents, African elephants, the bedroom rituals of “happy couples”, Weapons of Mass Destruction, and how to hatch an abandoned wood pigeon egg. Is there some trick to surviving survivalists? School shootings? Medical debts? Franks ’n’ beans?
A scorching indictment of America’s barbarity, past and present, and a lament for the way we are sleepwalking into environmental disaster, Ducks, Newburyport is a heresy, a wonder—and a revolution in the novel.
It’s also very, very funny.

If you never saw the episode with Lucy stomping the grapes, are you even an American??? Lucille Ball may not have trademarked her butt, but she did brand her famous vibrant red hair , which is pretty badass if I do say so. When the couple split in , Ball had full rights to the company which later became Paramount Pictures major alert. There, she would oversee the company air shows like Star Trek and Mission Impossible. But any who, Lucy was also ground breaking in a few other ways. Her and Desi were the first biracial couple on air.
