On an unseasonably warm afternoon in late September, Del did something that she could not explain to herself and would not explain to others. In the months to come, when she considered the moment that changed everything, she would reach no conclusion as to why she did what she did. In the short term, it was stupid, but in the long term it was nothing short of catastrophic.
Housebreaking is a literary novel which revolves around a stubborn 24-year-old woman, Del, who deals with a long-simmering family feud by dismantling her house and moving it, alone and by hand, across a frozen pond during a harsh New England winter.
