Named a Fall Pick by Boston Globe, ELLE, Library Journal, and MyDomain, Hardly Children features absent families, unrequited love, and other moments of discomfort. In Adamczyk’s deeply flavorful and peculiar collection, familiar spheres glow with something dreadful so as we might never view our worlds—art galleries, bedrooms, our own homes—with the same eye ever again.
If asked, I will not say that I love children. Nor that I particularly do not love children.
