From the Publisher:
The Bigtree clan struggle to protect their Florida Everglades alligator-wrestling theme park from a sophisticated competitor after their mother's death.
The ecologically fertile chaos of Florida's Everglades meets the orchestrated activity of contrived theme parks in Karen Russell's SWAMPLANDIA! The eponymous alligator-wrestling farm is run by a little girl just trying to keep the business above the mucky lines of insolvency and the saturated ground on which the plantation is founded. How Ava Bigtree stumbles into this responsibility despite two older siblings makes up the book's outlandish unfolding, along with the challenge of Swamplandia!'s rival in the local tourist economy, an organization known as World of Darkness. Selected by the editors of the New York Times Book Reviews as one of the Ten Best Books of 2011.


"Russell's willingness to lend flesh and blood to her fanciful, fantastical creations gives this spry novel a potent punch and announces an enthralling new beginning for a quickly evolving young author." (starred review) 12/06/2010

"[E]ccentric and stunningly wrought...." 02/04/2011

"Vividly worded, exuberant in characterization, the novel is a wild ride: Russell has style in spades." - Emma Donoghue 02/06/2011
