Flight Behavior


"Kingsolver is a gifted magician of words."--Time The extraordinary New York Times bestselling author of The Lacuna (winner of the Orange Prize), The Poisonwood Bible (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize), and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, Barbara Kingsolver returns with a truly stunning and unforgettable work. Flight Behavior is a brilliant and suspenseful novel set in present day Appalachia; a breathtaking parable of catastrophe and denial that explores how the complexities we inevitably encounter in life lead us to believe in our particular chosen truths. Kingsolver's riveting story concerns a young wife and mother on a failing farm in rural Tennessee who experiences something she cannot explain, and how her discovery energizes various competing factions--religious leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists, politicians--trapping her in the center of the conflict and ultimately opening up her world. Flight Behavior is arguably Kingsolver's must thrilling and accessible novel to date, and like so many other of her acclaimed works, represents contemporary American fiction at its finest.

Another Winner by Kingsolver

by gudone2 on Sep 7, 2013

In her latest novel Kingsolver delves slightly into the world of science fiction. No matter. Her depiction of Appalachia and the folks who inhabit this part of our country are spot on. Great plot line and a thoroughly enjoyable read. More


Flight Behavior

by ModelAEraLady on Feb 22, 2013

Kingsolver has a gift with putting the mundane things of daily life into her form of language that is actually how many people think. It is amazing to read the way she does this all through the book. The content doesn't compel you to read as much as her gift with handling language. It is, however ... More
