Synopsis:
Harrison William Shepherd, a highly observant writer, is caught between two worlds--in Mexico, working for communists Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky, and later in America, where he his caught up in the patriotism of World War II--in a gripping story about identity and the power of words by the best-selling author of The Poisonwood Bible. Read by the author. Simultaneous.

Review:
"[B]reathtaking....THE LACUNA can be enjoyed sheerly for the music of its passages on nature, archaeology, food and friendship; or for its portraits of real and invented people; or for its harmonious choir of voices. But the fuller value of Kingsolver's novel lies in its call to conscience and connection."

Liesl Schillinger, New York Times Book Review, 11/08/2009

Review:
"Barbara Kingsolver's...novel, THE LACUNA, is the most mature and ambitious one she's written during her celebrated 20-year career, but it's also her most demanding....[The] central, though oddly faint, character is Harrison Shepherd, a popular writer of romantic adventure novels. Kingsolver neatly weaves this quiet, watchful man through tumultuous events that rocked two countries, and one of the most impressive feats of THE LACUNA is how convincingly she tracks his developing voice..."

Ron Charles, Washington Post, 11/05/2009
