‘Isaac stands alone on a bridge and screams. Something screams back.’ It turns out, this something is an egg. The strangeness of this description is what initially drew me into this story, although there is so much more to it than that. The story of Isaac and the Egg discusses some pretty big topics of grief and mental distress, and it’s worth noting that the book opens with some mentions of suicide ideation, but it doesn’t linger there for long. This is a beautiful, sad and strange book featuring a man and an egg-like creature, and their unexpected cohabitation—with some excellent twists along the way—and I heartily recommend it.
