Review:

"The most mature and ambitious [novel] she's written...An absorbing portrayal of American life...A rich novel [with] a large, colorful canvas...A tender story about a thoughtful man."--Washington Post

"Masterful...a reader receives the great gift of entering not one but several worlds...The final pages haunt me still."--San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"A work that is often close to magic.... Much research underlies this complex weaving...but the work is lofted by lyric prose."--Denver Post

"[Kingsolver's] playful pastiche brings to vivid life the culture wars of an earlier era..."--Vogue

"A sweeping mural of sensory delights and stimulating ideas about art, government, identity and history...Readers will feel the sting of connection between then and now."--Seattle Times

"Kingsolver deftly combines real history and the life of the fictional protagonist...A sweeping tale."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Breathtaking...dazzling...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...But the fuller value...lies in its call to conscience and connection."--New York Times Book Review

"[Kingsolver] hasn't lost her touch...she delivers her signature blend of exotic locale, political backdrop and immediately engaging story line...teems with dark beauty."--People

"[Kingsolver] stirs the real with the imagined to produce a breathtakingly ambitious book, bold and rich...hopeful, political and artistic. The Lacuna fills a lacuna with powerfully imagined social history--Kansas City Star

"Rich...impassioned...engrossing...Politics and art dominate the novel, and their overt, unapologetic connection is refreshing."--Chicago Tribune

Book Description:

The Orange Prize-winning novel beautifully repackaged to tie-in with the paperback of Flight Behaviour.
