Book Trailer Thursday: Mosquitoland

The trailer for David Arnold’s debut novel Mosquitoland (Viking) is intriguing and bare. It becomes more intriguing still when you throw in the Booklist starred review. As narrator Mim takes a runaway-odyssey to reach her unwell mother, joining “memorable, inventive characters” along the way, “Arnold never lets up on the accelerator of life’s hard lessons,” wrote reviewer Gail Bush. I want to know why Mim’s not okay, what the lipstick warpaint is all about, and what, if anything, these two things have to do with one another. Luckily, March isn’t long to wait. (Bonus fact: According to the video’s description, Arnold also wrote and produced the music for the trailer!)
