The House in the Country

House in the Country

From the beloved author and illustrator of Star Child, The House in the Country is a spirited and poignant story inspired by Claire A. Nivola’s own uncommon childhood.

The daughter of artists, Nivola was raised in a bohemian Long Island enclave with neighbors like Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. During the idyllic summers she spent there, she explored life as a budding artist and developed a deep connection with the house her young immigrant parents turned into a lively, creative home.

Lushly illustrated with original watercolors that bring Nivola’s poetic, evocative prose to life, The House in the Country is a journey through the joys of childhood and the pains of growing up.
