Remarkably Bright Creatures

Curl up with 'that octopus book' everyone is talking about

«A beautiful examination of how loneliness can be transformed, cracked open, with the slightest touch from another living thing. Shelby Van Pelt makes good on this wild conceit, somehow making me love a misanthropic octopus, but her writing is so finely tuned that it's a natural element of a larger story about family, about loss and the electricity of something found»

Kevin Wilson, author of NOTHING TO SEE HERE

«Remarkably Bright Creatures is the rarest of feats: a book that manages to be wry and wise, charming and surprising, and features one of the most intriguing and satisfying characters I’ve encountered in fiction in a very long time – Marcellus the Octopus. I don’t know how Shelby Van Pelt managed to make this uncommon tale sing so beautifully, but sing it does, and I defy you to put it down once you’ve started»

Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, author of THE NEST

«A unique and luminous book»

Booklist

«A winningly totally original feel-good mystery packed with memorable characters that, once started, demands to be finished»

Irish Independent

«Truly original and touching, Remarkably Bright Creatures is a story of family, community, and optimism in spite of darkness. Prepare to fall in love»

Helen Hoang, author of THE KISS QUOTIENT

«Shelby’s characters are unique and yet completely relatable ... It is a fresh and fascinating story full of heart and humour and I loved it

Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things

«An ultimately feel-good but deceptively sensitive debut about what it feels like to have love taken from you, only to find it again in the most unexpected places ... Memorable and tender

Washington Post

«A warm and satisfying book. It wrapped itself around me, luring me into the many mysteries hidden just beneath the surface.»

Polly Crosby, author of The Illustrated Child

«Remarkable characters, who will stay with you for a long time.»

Anstey Harris, author of The Trials and Triumphs of Grace Atherton

«You’ll bask in this book’s warmth and wit»
