Clear eyed and spirited Taylor Greer grew up poor in rural Kentucky with the goals of avoiding pregnancy and getting away But when she heads west with high hopes and a barely functional car she meets the human condition head on By the time Taylor arrives in Tucson Arizona she has acquired a completely unexpected child a three year old American Indian girl named Turtle and must somehow come to terms with both motherhood and the necessity for putting down roots Hers is a story about love and friendship abandonment and belonging and the discovery of surprising resources in apparently empty places, In her most accomplished novel Barbara Kingsolver takes us on an epic journey from the Mexico City of artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo to the America of Pearl Harbor FDR and J Edgar Hoover The Lacuna is a poignant story of a man pulled between two nations as they invent their modern identities br br Born in the United States reared in a series of provisional households in Mexico from a coastal island jungle to s Mexico City Harrison Shepherd finds precarious shelter but no sense of home on his thrilling odyssey Life is whatever he learns from housekeepers who put him to work in the kitchen errands he runs in the streets and one fateful day by mixing plaster for famed Mexican muralist Diego Rivera He discovers a passion for Aztec history and meets the exotic imperious artist Frida Kahlo who will become his lifelong friend When he goes to work for Lev Trotsky an exiled political leader fighting for his life Shepherd inadvertently casts his lot with art and revolution newspaper headlines and howling gossip and a risk of terrible violence br br Meanwhile to the north the United States will soon be caught up in the internationalist goodwill of World War II There in the land of his birth Shepherd believes he might remake himself in America s hopeful image and claim a voice of his own He finds support from an unlikely kindred soul his stenographer Mrs Brown who will be far more valuable to her employer than he could ever know Through darkening years political winds continue to toss him between north and south in a plot that turns many times on the unspeakable breach the lacuna between truth and public presumption br br With deeply compelling characters a vivid sense of place and a clear grasp of how history and public opinion can shape a life Barbara Kingsolver has created an unforgettable portrait of the artist and of art itself The Lacuna is a rich and daring work of literature establishing its author as one of the most provocative and important of her time, Flight Behavior takes on one of the most contentious subjects of our time climate change With a deft and versatile empathy Kingsolver dissects the motives that drive denial and belief in a precarious world br br Flight Behavior transfixes from its opening scene when a young woman s narrow experience of life is thrown wide with the force of a raging fire In the lyrical language of her native Appalachia Barbara Kingsolver bares the rich tarnished humanity of her novel s inhabitants and unearths the modern complexities of rural existence Characters and reader alike are quickly carried beyond familiar territory here into the unsettled ground of science faith and everyday truces between reason and conviction br br Dellarobia Turnbow is a restless farm wife who gave up her own plans when she accidentally became pregnant at seventeen Now after a decade of domestic disharmony on a failing farm she has settled for permanent disappointment but seeks momentary escape through an obsessive flirtation with a younger man As she hikes up a mountain road behind her house to a secret tryst she encounters a shocking sight a silent forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists religious leaders and the media The bewildering emergency draws rural farmers into unexpected acquaintance with urbane journalists opportunists sightseers and a striking biologist with his own stake in the outcome As the community lines up to judge the woman and her miracle Dellarobia confronts her family her church her town and a larger world in a flight toward truth that could undo all she has ever believed br br Flight Behavior takes on one of the most contentious subjects of our time climate change With a deft and versatile empathy Kingsolver dissects the motives that drive denial and belief in a precarious world, Bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver returns with her first nonfiction narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth You are what you eat br br As the U S population made an unprecedented mad dash for the Sun Belt one carload of us paddled against the tide heading for the Promised Land where water falls from the sky and green stuff grows all around We were about to begin the adventure of realigning our lives with our food chain br br Naturally our first stop was to buy junk food and fossil fuel br br Hang on for the ride With characteristic poetry and pluck Barbara Kingsolver and her family sweep readers along on their journey away from the industrial food pipeline to a rural life in which they vow to buy only food raised in their own neighborhood grow it themselves or learn to live without it Their good humored search yields surprising discoveries about turkey sex life and overly zealous zucchini plants en route to a food culture that s better for the neighborhood and also better on the table Part memoir part journalistic investigation Animal Vegetable Miracle makes a passionate case for putting the kitchen back at the center of family life and diversified farms at the center of the American diet br br This is the story of a year in which we made every attempt to feed ourselves animals and vegetables whose provenance we really knew and of how our family was changed by our first year of deliberately eating food produced from the same place where we worked went to school loved our neighbors drank the water and breathed the air
