Pearce Oysters, a family drama set on the Louisiana coastline during the historic 2010 oil spill, follows the Pearces, local oyster farmers whose business, family, and livelihood are on the brink of collapse.



This is eye-opening, eco-fiction at its best—a story that highlights the grit and beauty of lives lived in an overlooked corner of the American South. Diving deep into the bonds of family, culture, class, and industry, the novel elevates the voices of deeply sympathetic characters: Jordan, the reluctant head of his family’s storied oyster company; May, his distressed, widowed mother; and Benny, his beatnik musician brother, who returns from New Orleans in their time of crisis.

Why Zibby Loves It...

Pearce Oysters is a lyrical, important, and emotional read—a poignant deep dive into the intersection of environmental, family, and financial factors. Joseyln’s characters jump off the page, and in every scene the reader sinks deeper into the Louisiana Bayou. This is an exquisite family portrait meets cli-fi expose.
