Kingsolver Climate Change Novel

If you’ve not read Barbara Kingsolver’s interesting novel set in the American south, about climate change and butterflies, now is your chance to do it on the cheap, as the book is now 2.99 in Kindle form. I enjoyed it.

Flight Behavior: A Novel

The extraordinary New York Times bestselling author of The Lacuna (winner of the Orange Prize), The Poisonwood Bible (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize), and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, Barbara Kingsolver returns with a truly stunning and unforgettable work. Flight Behavior is a brilliant and suspenseful novel set in present day Appalachia; a breathtaking parable of catastrophe and denial that explores how the complexities we inevitably encounter in life lead us to believe in our particular chosen truths. Kingsolver’s riveting story concerns a young wife and mother on a failing farm in rural Tennessee who experiences something she cannot explain, and how her discovery energizes various competing factions—religious leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists, politicians—trapping her in the center of the conflict and ultimately opening up her world. Flight Behavior is arguably Kingsolver’s must thrilling and accessible novel to date, and like so many other of her acclaimed works, represents contemporary American fiction at its finest.

  1. Novels, the the principal domain of the “progressoe”
    community and shall substitute for the lack of rational thinking
    and any clear and constructive solutions other than
    the retread vision of failed socialist dogma.

    Novels, are in general, an escape from the reality of life.

    This is quite fitting, if one’s principals are built on
