Emily Habeck: Shark Heart

Many have said love is a transformative experience, but author Emily Habeck takes this idea one step further. In her newly paperback’d novel, newlyweds Wren and Lewis face a strange debacle: Lewis is slowly becoming a great white shark. While his spirit and intellect remain tragically human, his impulses take on that of the aquatic beast, and Wren struggles to adjust to her husband’s fate as much as the man himself. As goodreads user jay puts it, “the author looked at ‘would you still love me if i was a worm’ and went ‘what if instead of silly, this was actually a sad question.’” Catch Habeck in person and perhaps get your copy signed at BookPeople – quick, before you, too, turn into a cartilage-covered creature. – James Scott
