Janey and Cleveland are two auditors for the US egg industry who go rogue and conceive a plot to steal a million
chickens in the middle of the night—an entire egg farm’s worth of animals. They assemble a precarious, quarrelsome
team and descend on the farm on a dark spring evening. It doesn’t go as planned.
In her most powerful work yet, Deb Olin Unferth tells a wildly inventive, unforgettable heist story, with one million
nonhuman consciousnesses at its center. Funny, philosophical, heartening and heartbreaking, Barn 8 ultimately asks:
What constitutes meaningful action in a world so in need of change? Unferth comes at this question with striking
ingenuity, razor-sharp wit, and ferocious passion. Barn 8 is a rare comic-political drama that could have been written
by no one else.

This is fantasy with changing POV in it’s telling. It’s a strange story filled with some interesting facts about chicken as two women decide that chickens are being treated cruelly. They get involved with animal activists and from there things go crazy. Liked the narrator.
