Waterstones Says

Obreht’s first novel since 2011’s Orange Prize-winning The Tiger’s Wife is a rapturous reimagining of the American Southwest. Invoking the superstitions of a bygone age and melding them to a rich study of character and place, Inland is a mighty piece of work that even manages to surpass her stellar debut.

Signed Edition

A MAN SEARCHING FOR A HOME HE CAN'T FIND.
A WOMAN BOUND TO A HOME SHE CAN'T LEAVE.

Nora is an unflinching frontierswoman awaiting the return of the men in her life - her husband who has gone in search of water for the parched household, and her elder sons who have vanished after an explosive argument. Nora is biding her time with her youngest son, who is convinced that a mysterious beast is stalking the land around their home, and her husband's seventeen-year-old cousin, who communes with spirits.

Lurie is a former outlaw and a man haunted by ghosts. He sees lost souls who want something from him, and he finds reprieve from their longing in an unexpected relationship that inspires a momentous expedition across the West.

Mythical, lyrical, and sweeping in scope, Inland is grounded in true but little-known history. It showcases all of Tea Obreht's talents as a writer, as she subverts and reimagines the myths of the American West, making them entirely - and unforgettably - her own.

“Monotonous”

I was so looking forward to this, but it is so dull. Yes, it evokes a place and time well I suppose with sometimes interesting yet predictable characters, but I just fail to see the point of it. I got to the point... More
