About this title

Synopsis:

In Arhat, Iowa, there are cornfields and there's the Colony. Smart and precocious fifteen-year-old Eve is feeling stymied by both. So she gets her first job as a highway work crew flagman, falls in love with a local teen Adonis and his widowed father, and plots to intervene in her best friend's arranged marriage. As Thomas Rayfiel's Colony Girl races to an unexpected climax, Eve finds herself trying to save the colony at the same time as she struggles to break free of its ominous control.

Review:

"[A] winning, original and supremely intelligent novel." --Richard Eder, "The New York Times"

""Colony Girl" is a teetering, scary, vibrant, and funny book, alternately spare as a cornfield and rich with gently surreal invention." --Jonathan Lethem, author of "Girl In Landscape "and "Motherless Brooklyn"

"His protagonist and narrator, Eve, is utterly original, indeed sui generis...Eve shows us just what a writer with a truthful imagination can achieve; she is the triumph a the heart of this marvelous new novel." --"Los Angeles Times Book Review"
