Where The Crawdads Sing is an absorbing, atmospheric novel bubbling with the tension of a lonely girl’s coming-of-age in the marches of North Carolina and a community beset by tragedy and shaped by the landscape.   Written with great sensitivity and intelligence, this character-driven novel is a rich story of innocence undone.

Where The Crawdads Sing was No. 1 on the New York Times fiction best-seller list for 67 weeks, with 30 weeks at No. 1.
'For a debut the prose is impressively accomplished ... A Hollywood film seems inevitable.  Yet it will be hard to match on screen the delicacy of Owens's exploration of the natural world. Kya and her magical little world are a rare achievement.' The Times
‘Ce roman est plus qu’un chef-d’œuvre littéraire qui a déjà séduit plus de quatre millions de lecteurs à travers le monde.  C’est aussi un grand livre sur l’initiation à l’écologie, c’est-à-dire effectivement à la vie.’ Olivier Nouaillas, La Vie.
