Read full description of the books:



Selected for the 2009 Barnes & Noble’s Discover Great New Writers program, finalist for the ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award in 2009, longlisted for the 2009 Story Prize, and shortlisted for the 2010 Frank O’Connor Award

The stories in Laura van den Berg’s rich and inventive debut illuminate the intersection of the mythic and the mundane: a failed actress takes a job as a Bigfoot impersonator; a botanist seeking a rare flower crosses paths with a group of men hunting the Loch Ness monster; a disillusioned missionary in Africa grapples with grief and a growing obsession with a creature rumored to live in the forests of the Congo; and in the title story, a young woman traveling with her scientist mother in Madagascar confronts her burgeoning sexuality and her dream of becoming a long-distance swimmer.

Rendered with precision and longing, the women who narrate these starkly beautiful stories are consumed with searching—for absolution, for solace, for the flash of extraordinary in the ordinary that will forever alter their lives.
