Summary
  • "This hilarious, truth-telling debut upends notions of family, protest, and Appalachia, and forces us to reimagine an America we think we know"--
  • "This hilarious, truth-telling debut upends notions of family, protest, and Appalachia, and forces us to reimagine an America we think we know"-- Helen arrives in Appalachian Ohio eager to carry out her boyfriend's ideas for living off the land, but when winter comes he calls it quits. Helped by Rudy, her government-questioning, seasonal-affective-disordered boss, and the neighbor couple Karen and Lily, Helen makes it to spring. Helen, Karen and Lily split the work and the food, build a house, and make a life that sustains them, if barely, for years. Then Karen and Lily's son, Perley, decides he wants to go to school. Rudy sets up a fruit-tree nursery on the pipeline easement edging their land, and soon the outside world is brought clamoring into their makeshift family. -- adapted from jacket
