by Rebecca Rukeyser

$25.00 $33.00

A razor-sharp debut about desire, artifice and dissolution on a remote homestead in Alaska, for fans of Ottessa Moshfegh, Nell Zink and Miranda July.

I didn't realize how much I needed this lusty, funny, heart-breaking book until I devoured it in a single sitting ... A sharp, flawless debut' - Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties

Mira, a young woman fascinated with sleaze, finds work on a remote Alaskan island at 
the far edges of the Kodiak archipelago. The Lavender Island Wilderness Lodge, run by the indomitable Maureen and her gregarious husband Lew, is a converted homestead that sells its international guests a fantasy - a taste of life on the untamed frontier.

But the pristine natural beauty of Alaska soon reveals a wilderness of conflicted human 
desire and, as Mira nurses an erotic obsession, the other residents of Lavender Island are making plans and taking steps that will tear apart the island's seeming paradise.

'An astounding debut: original and adventurous, horny and hilarious - it's everything I want from a book.' - Rachel Yoder, author of Nightbitch
