Hunting for Sparrows is a clever and captivating play on the conventions of literary genre and traditional gender roles that subverts stereotypes and assumptions through a riveting, thriller-paced tale of greed and moral bankruptcy. With a healthy dose of humor that ranges from wry to mordant, this fresh take on a classic brings to life the hyper-real hue of life amongst West Palm Beach’s social registry and inside its shadowy corridors of corporate power. Here we find Thelma, Claire Wise’s daughter and the novel’s improbable heroine. She arrives in South Florida like a fish out of water, having spent her recent years in Boston living the life of an over-educated, disengaged woman of privilege. As Thelma’s hunger for certainty and closure leads her deep into a miasma of danger and duplicity, Hunting for Sparrows takes us into a world of soap opera histrionics and intense psychological reflection in which lives are lost, reality is challenged, and loyalty becomes indistinguishable from deception. It is a cautionary tale that plots the fine line between justice and revenge, which once crossed has the nasty habit of corrupting the just. Can paranoid delusion be explained away by the fact that people really are out to get you? Hunting for Sparrows is an intellectually adventurous and refreshingly inventive tale with an irreverent, playfully ironic heart that will keep you guessing with each turn of the page. It is an inspired literary jigsaw puzzle with an ending that will make you want to go back to the beginning and try to put it together again.
