On the surface, Annie Hartnett's Rabbit Cake has all of the elements that make me shun a novel: child narrator, dead mother, falling-apart family, a character struggling with mental illness. But Hartnett deftly weaves those elements into a novel full of emotional depth, sly and quirky humor, and chacaters who defy and rise above type. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
