Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Janey and Cleveland are two auditors for the US egg industry who go rogue and conceive a plot to steal a million chickens in the middle of the night--an entire egg farm's worth of animals. They assemble a precarious, quarrelsome team and descend on the farm on a dark spring evening. It doesn't go as planned. In her most powerful work yet, Deb Olin Unferth tells a wildly inventive, unforgettable heist story, with one million nonhuman consciousnesses at its center. Funny, philosophical, heartening and heartbreaking, Barn 8 ultimately asks: What constitutes meaningful action in a world so in need of change? Unferth comes at this question with striking ingenuity, razor-sharp wit, and ferocious passion. Barn 8 is a rare comic-political drama that could have been written by no one else."--Back cover.
