About This Item

New York: HarperCollins / Perennial, October 2001. Trade Paperback. First paperback edition / full number line. Fine. Very slight corner wear, otherwise As New. Not from a library. Not remainder mark. 444 pages.

Barbara Kingsolver's fifth novel is a hymn to wildness that celebrates the prodigal spirit of human nature, and of nature itself. It weaves together three stories of human love within a larger tapestry of lives amid the mountains and farms of southern Appalachia. Over the course of one humid summer, this novel's intriguing protagonists face disparate predicaments but find connections to one another and to the flora and fauna with which they necessarily share a place.

Synopsis

Prodigal Summer (2000) is the fifth novel by American author Barbara Kingsolver. Drawing heavily on the concepts of Ecology and with the trademark interweaving plots, this novel tells three stories of love, loss and connections in rural Kentucky.
