"In a small unnamed town in the American South, a church congregation arrives to a service and finds a figure asleep on a pew. The person is genderless, racially ambiguous, and refuses to speak. One family takes the strange visitor in and nicknames them Pew. As the town spends the week preparing for a mysterious Forgiveness Festival, Pew is shuttled from one household to the next. The earnest and seemingly well-meaning townspeople see conflicting identities in Pew, and many confess their fears and secrets to them in one-sided conversations. Pew listens and observes while experiencing brief flashes of past lives or clues about their origins. As days pass, the void around Pew's presence begins to unnerve the community, whose generosity erodes into menace and suspicion. Yet by the time Pew's story reaches a shattering and unsettling climax at the Forgiveness Festival, the secret of their true nature - as a devil or an angel or something else entirely - is dwarfed by even larger truths."--Publisher description.… (mer)

Lyrical, literary, poetic. Sufficiently vague so as to allow reader to impose their own framework. Metaphorical.

Boring and pretentious. I found this to be not an interesting or engaging way of exploring the issues. DNF ( )

Catherine Lacey is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Compared to Biography of X, I found Pew to be a rather simple and straightforward story that says an awful lot without saying too much. The only reason I did not give this book 5 stars is because while I generally always welcome an ambiguous ending, I'm not entirely sure how much I loved the way this one was written. Regardless, I found this to be a really great piece of speculative fiction with suburb writing that I will likely return to in the future. ( )

very, very good. a meditation on how people desperately need labels, and how lost they become without them. hypocrites, the rot of the heartland, some good people, many ugly people, and our stalwart narrator feeling it all with a visceral intensity and piercing insight. loved it. ( )

wow.. Pew is an easy read on the surface, but harder to figure out the mystery. this book was mystique and odd and eerie and brilliant. i've been sittng on this book for a while and i can't stop thinking about it. who is Pew? where did they come from? did Pew really have no past memory or were they just being silent? why did Pew show up in that town? in that church? Pew was questioned and evaluated by the whole town. people tried art therapy, mental health, questioning, and religious inquiry... they were put through the ringer. reading this book brought up so my thoughts.. greed, love, God are things children know about, but how do they know these things different from adults.
Pew pushed the boundaries of comfortableness with their "thoughts-of-nothingness" “Pew listened to others, but did not listen at the same time”. by the end of the book i was left thinking a lot about the spiritual universe. i found this book to be an opening to a path to understanding and healing ourselves and finding peace. i can’t say i fully comprehended all that Catherine Lacey wrote.. not even sure we are supposed to, but her sentences and reflective dialogue were powerful ( )
