Wayward - Dana Spiotta

Sale price $22.95 Regular price $27.00

On the heels of the 2016 election, Samantha Raymond's life begins to come apart: her mother is ill, her teenage daughter is increasingly remote, and at fifty-three she finds herself staring into "the Mids" - that hour of supreme wakefulness between three and four in the morning in which women of a certain age suddenly find themselves contemplating motherhood, mortality, and, in this case, the state of our unraveling nation. 

Wayward is an unforgettable novel about the female body, about female complexity and difficulty. Probing and provocative, brainy and sensual, it is a testament to our weird, off-kilter America, to reforms and resistance and utopian wishes, and to the beauty of ruins.
