Tucker Malarkey's picture

Tucker Malarkey

Tucker Malarkey's debut novel, An Obvious Enchantment, defies easy classification. A "quest novel," distinguished author Margot Livesey called it. An "intriguing mystery," Kirkus Reviews decided. Publishers Weekly dubbed the story "an uncommon romance." Perhaps Booklist summed up the confusion best: "Malarkey's novel is a very convincing African melodrama or something more... An impressive debut."
