In her U.S. debut, Migrations, Charlotte McConaghy tells the complex first person narrative of Franny Lynch. After suffering a series of mysterious traumas, Franny has given up on a conventional life, and decided to follow the last of the Arctic terns' migration south. Her dangerous ventures aboard the ship Saghani gradually break her austere exterior, revealing the truth of her violent and tragic history. The novel toys with conventional narrative form, embodying the fragmented patterns of Franny's psychological and behavioral patterns. Migrations explores themes of loneliness, entrapment, freedom, and more.
