Description
(One of the New York Times Book Review's 100 Notable Books of 2012) The author of the PEN/Faulkner Award winner World's End, the National Book Award finalist Drop City, and the biographical novel of Frank Lloyd Wright, The Women, T.C. Boyle here gives us a historical novel about women's lives on a tiny, desolate, windswept island off the coast of Southern California. Two families—the Waters in the 1880s and the Lesters in the 1930s—come there to start new lives and pursue dreams of self-reliance and freedom.

"Two strong women generations apart are seduced and mistreated by the same powerful entity—not a man but a starkly beautiful, barely inhabited island off the California coast.... Boyle portrays the heartbreaking toll San Miguel takes on these couples in a novel as beguiling as the island itself."—O. The Oprah Magazine

"Boyle's epic saga of struggle, loss, and resilience tackles Pacific pioneer history with literary verve.... [He] subtly interweaves the fates of Native Americans, Irish immigrants, Spanish and Italian migrant workers, and Chinese fisherman into the Waters' and Lesters' lives, but the novel is primarily a history of the land itself, unchanging despite its various visitors and residents, and as beautiful, imperfect, and unrelenting as Boyle's characters."—Publishers Weekly
