Synopsis: Mourning the loss of his wife, and in a fit of rage and grief, an aged fisherman attacks his son and flees into the neighboring woods. Soon accompanied by a teenage waif, the fisherman regales the girl with tales of his beloved, his “Parmacheene Belle;” muses on the modernizing world; and forges on his quixotic quest to reach his late wife’s native coast. Joanna Scott’s debut novel is one of the strangest love stories ever told, as well as an exploration into the unknown heart of our country.

About the Author: Joanna Scott is the author of seven novels, including Tourmaline and Arrogance, as well as the story collection Various Antidotes. She is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and the Lannan Literary Award. She lives with her family in Rochester, New York.
