Amazon Best Books of the Month, June 2012: In Tell the Wolves I’m Home, Carol Rifka Brunt has made a singular portrait
of the late-‘80s AIDS epidemic’s transformation of a girl and her family. But beyond that, she tells a universal story
of how love chooses us, and how flashes of our beloved live through us even after they’re gone. Before her Uncle Finn
died of an illness people don’t want to talk about, 14-year-old June Elbus thought she was the center of his world. A
famous and reclusive painter, Finn made her feel uniquely understood, privy to secret knowledge like how to really hear
Mozart’s Requiem or see the shape of negative space. When he’s gone, she discovers he had a bigger secret: his longtime
partner Toby, the only other person who misses him as much as she does. Her clandestine friendship with Toby—who her
parents blame for Finn’s illness—sharpens tensions with her sister, Greta, until their bond seems to exist only in the
portrait Finn painted of them. With wry compassion, Brunt portrays the bitter lengths to which we will go to hide our
soft underbellies, and how summoning the courage to be vulnerable is the only way to see through to each other’s hungry,
golden souls. --Mari Malcolm
