A "New York Times" Notable Book, Borders Original Voices selection, and Nebula, Endeavour, and Spectrum Award finalist."Suspenseful and inspiring."--"School Library Journal""A stylistic and psychological tour de force."--"The New York Times Book Review"There are many books we'd love to see back in print and we're very happy to have acquired Kelley Eskridge's debut novel, "Solitaire." Jackal Segura is a Hope: born to responsibility and privilege as a symbol of a fledgling world government. Soon she'll become part of the global administration, sponsored by the huge corporation that houses, feeds, employs, and protects her and everyone she loves. Then, just as she discovers that everything she knows is a lie, she becomes a pariah, a murderer: a person with no community and no future. Grief-stricken and alone, she is put into an experimental program designed to inflict the experience of years of solitary confinement in a few short months: virtual confinement in a sealed cell within her own mind. Afterward, branded and despised, she returns to a world she no longer knows. Struggling to make her way, she has a chance to rediscover her life, her love, and her soul--in a strange place of shattered hopes and new beginnings called Solitaire.Kelley Eskridge (kelleyeskridge.com) is a novelist, essayist, and screenwriter. Her stories have received the Astraea Award and been adapted for television. A movie based on "Solitaire" is in development. She lives in Seattle with her partner, novelist Nicola Griffith.

Review:

"An ageless story."--Ursula K. Le Guin ("A Wizard of Earthsea")"A knock-out . . . wonderful!"--Karen Joy Fowler ("The Jane Austen Book Club")"Solitaire is a novel of our time: a story of dashed expectations and corporate manipulations. Eskridge explores what it means to really see ourselves, and what we are ultimately capable of. Jackal, a slight adolescent, matures into an adult capable of living well, no matter what her circumstances. She is a worthy role model for any reader."--"BookPage""Vivid and provocative."--"The Baltimore Sun""As with Eskridge's short fiction, the vividness of the characters is what makes this book so memorable."--"Locus""Psychological insights that would warm the heart of Alice Hoffman."--"The Seattle Times"
