“Nothing about Erpenbeck’s novel is overtly about ecology or climate. In fact, you could say that the book is largely in the mode of realism. But I would argue that simply the centering of the house, and the decentering of an individual human protagonist, reconfigures our relationship to both time and place in storytelling.”
