Synopsis

In her dazzling new novel-her first in more than a decade-Moore turns her eye on the anxiety and disconnection of post-9/11 America, on the insidiousness of racism, the blind-sidedness of war, and the recklessness thrust on others in the name of love. As the United States begins gearing up for war in the Middle East, twenty-year-old Tassie Keltjin, the Midwestern daughter of a gentleman hill farmer-his "Keltjin potatoes" are justifiably famous-has come to a university town as a college student, her brain on fire with Chaucer, Sylvia Plath, Simone de Beauvoir. As the year unfolds and she is drawn deeper into each of these lives, her own life back home becomes ever more alien to her: her parents are frailer; her brother, aimless and lost in high school, contemplates joining the military. Tassie finds herself becoming more and more the stranger she felt herself to be, and as life and love unravel dramatically, even shockingly, she is forever changed. A New York Times bestseller. A USA Today bestseller. Selected for the 2010 Orange Prize Shortlist. A 2010 PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist. A Indie Next Notable Title, September 2009. A 2009 Washington Post Best Book for Fiction. A 2009 Chicago Tribune Book of the Year for Fiction. A 2009 Christian Science Monitor Book of the Year for Fiction. A 2009 Kansas City Star Top 100 Book for Fiction.
