Karen Russell talks about Swamplandia! ($24.95). The Bigtree alligator wrestling dynasty is in decline, and Swamplandia!, its island home and gator-wrestling theme park, is swiftly being encroached upon by a competitor. To save her family, Ava must journey on her own to a perilous part of the swamp called the Underworld. Russell is the author of St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves.
