Description
(Winner of the 2010 Orange Prize for Fiction) The author of the Pulitzer Prize–nominated The Poisonwood Bible and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle returns with this novel, an odyssey through the mid-20th century. Harrison Shepherd, born in the United States and reared in a series of households in Mexico through the 1930s, seeks a place to call home between two nations inventing their modern identities. Mixing plaster for Diego Rivera, he discovers a passion for Aztec history and befriends the exotic, imperious Frida Kahlo, as well as exiled revolutionary Leon Trotsky. He turns then to the north, to the country of his birth, preparing to save the world in World War II.

"The novel achieves a rare dramatic power.... Kingsolver masterfully resurrects a dark period in American history with the assured hand of a true literary artist."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
