Rikki Ducornet has 48 books on Goodreads with ratings. Rikki Ducornet’s most popular book is Beauty and the Beast. Synopsis A feral boy comes of age on a campus decadent with starched sheets, sweating cocktails, and homemade jams. Stub is the cause of that missing sweater, the pie that disappeared off the cooling rack.

This novel is perhaps her most accessible book, which she achieves without sacrificing the Brightfellow Rikki Ducornet. Coffee House (Consortium, dist.), $ trade paper (p) ISBN   The following is from Rikki Ducornet's novel, Brightfellow. Ducornet is the author of nine novels as well as collections of short stories, essays, and poems. She has been a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, honored twice by the Lannan Foundation, and been the recipient of an Academy Award in Literature. Brightfellow is a solitary young boy’s unconventional coming of age story. Abandoned by his parents at an early age, Stub moves onto the local college campus where he takes refuge in utilities closets and abandoned library storage rooms.   For Ducornet, the psychological harm done when play is thwarted becomes substantial material for a novel. And Brightfellow, her second book in a planned trilogy about the betrayal of innocence (following her work, Netsuke) movingly dramatizes how play is more than a means to get into Harvard—it’s essential to the survival of the species.
