A gifted and award-winning writer and essayist, Jayne Anne Phillips’s “quick, piercing tales of love and loss [demonstrate] a keen love of language, and a rare talent of illuminating the secret core of ordinary lives with clear-sighted unsentimentality,” commented Michiko Kakutani in the New York Times. Phillips is the author of three critically acclaimed novels, MotherKind, Shelter, and Machine Dreams, and two collections of widely anthologized stories. Her first book in nine years, Lark and Termite is a novel of love, loss, and family ghosts set in West Virginia and Korea during the 1950s.
