A keenly awaited - and by all advance accounts - marvelous new novel occasions this special Seattle return by one of the most cherished, vital writers at work today, Barbara Kingsolver. Recipient of numerous literary awards, the National Humanities Medal, the Orange Prize, and Dayton Literary Peace Prize among them, and herself the founder of a vital award annually given, the Bellwether Prize, she is here with the new novel that is Unsheltered (Harper).
“Exceptionally involving and rewarding…There is much to delight in and think about while reveling in Kingsolver’s vital characters, quicksilver dialogue, intimate moments, dramatic showdowns, and lushly realized milieus…An enveloping, tender, witty, and awakening novel of love and trauma, family and survival, moral dilemmas and intellectual challenges…” - Booklist.
Unsheltered comes thirty years after her memorable debut novel, The Bean Trees.
