Audience: General/trade. 8703 8703--In a glorious, sweeping new novel by the bestselling author of "The Volcano Lover, " Sontag once again bases her work on a real story. In 1876, a group of Poles led by Maryna Zalewska, Poland's greatest actress, travels to California to found a "utopian" commune. "In America" is a big, juicy, surprising book about a woman's search for self-transformation, about the fate of idealism, and about the world of the theater.
This book I found to be more challenging than the first chapter appeared to promise.
My interest was held there and didn't go further.
The book rests now with others that I would like to pass on to minds that can engage in a more static structure.
