In the lawless, drought-ridden about Inland: A Novel lands of the Arizona Territory in 1893, two extraordinary lives unfold. Nora is an unflinching frontierswoman awaiting the return of the men in her life-her hubby, who has gone searching for drinking water for the parched household, and her elder sons, who’ve vanished after an explosive argument. Nora is normally biding her time with her youngest child, who is convinced that a strange beast is certainly stalking the land around their home.
Meanwhile, Lurie is normally a former outlaw and a guy haunted by spirits. He sees dropped souls who would like something from him, and he discovers reprieve using their longing within an unexpected relationship that inspires a momentous expedition over the West. How Lurie’s death-defying trek at last intersects with Nora’s plight is the surprise and suspense of the brilliant novel.
Mythical, lyrical, and sweeping in scope, Inland is usually grounded in true but little-known history. It showcases all of Téa Obreht’s skills as a article writer, as she subverts and reimagines the misconceptions of the American West, producing them entirely-and unforgettably-her own.
Praise for Inland
“As it should be, the scenery from the West itself is a character, thrillingly rendered throughout . . Here, Obreht’s simple but rich prose catches and luxuriates in the West’s beauty and unexpected menace. Remarkable within a book with such a sprawling ensemble, Obreht also offers a poetic contact for writing intricate and precise personality descriptions.”-The NY Times Book Review (Editors’ Choice)
“Beautifully wrought.”-Vanity Fair
“Obreht is the kind of writer who are able to forever change how you think about a issue, simply through her capabilities of explanation. . . . Inland can be an ambitious and beautiful work about many things: immigration, the afterlife, responsibility, guilt, relationship, parenthood, revenge, all the roads and waterways that resulted in America. Miraculously, it’s also a page-turner and a mystery, and a love notice to a camel, and, such as a camel, improbable and marvelous, something to happily puzzle at 1st and consider your breath aside at the end.”-Elizabeth McCracken, O: The Oprah Magazine
