The Smell of Other People's Houses

Nominated for the Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis 2017, category Jugendbuch

Alaska, 1970: growing up here is like nowhere else.

Ruth wants to be remembered by her grieving mother.
Dora wishes she was invisible to her abusive father.
Alyce is staying at home to please her parents.
Hank is running away for the sake of his brothers.

Four very different lives are about to become entangled. Because if we don´t save each other, how can we begin to save ourselves?

Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock´s extraordinary, stunning debut is both moving, and deeply authentic. These intertwining stories of love, tragedy, wild luck, and salvation on the edge of America´s Last Frontier introduce a writer of rare and wonderful talent.

"The physical landscape of Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock's Alaska is raw, beautiful and wholly unfamiliar, but the true wonder of this thrilling, arresting debut novel is that the emotional landscape feels just as powerful-and just as untrammeled." Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay
Born and raised in Alaska and a longtime journalist for Alaska Public Radio, Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock spent ten years fishing commercially and raised her children on a boat in Southeast Alaska - bringing a rare authenticity to her writing about America´s last frontier. She now lives in Lyons, Colorado, where she´s slowly rebuilding her house after the catastrophic floods of September 2013. THE SMELL OF OTHER PEOPLE´S HOUSES is her first novel.
