Book Trailer Thursday: The Nest

Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney’s debut novel, The Nest (Ecco), focuses largely on family dynamics, especially that special brand of bickering that ensues when siblings are forced to work together. Although the trailer for the highly anticipated family drama doesn’t reveal any plot points, it does include a gaggle of celebrities—such as The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Ellie Kemper—dishing on what it’s like growing up with brothers and sisters. They reveal the resentments they hid as children and how those relationships have transformed into adulthood. Kate Flannery’s pudding story will make you laugh, and be sure to check Rebecca Vnuk’s starred Booklist review, which is linked above.
