Publisher's Summary

Born in the US and reared in Mexico, Harrison Shepherd is a liability to his social-climbing mother, Salome. When a violent incident sends him to North Carolina, he remakes himself in America's hopeful image. But political winds continue to throw him between north and south, in a plot that turns many times on the unspeakable breach - the lacuna - between truth and public presumption.

Well worth it

Barbara Kingsolver is a wonderful story teller. I loved The Poisonwood Bible and I was not let down by The Lacuna. Her characters have such strong voices, and their lives are so vibrantly drawn that they felt real to me and I did not want to stop reading. Many of the characters were in fact real people, cleverly woven with fictional characters through a turbulent time in the history of the world. Barbara Kingsolver reads this book herself, and she is as good as any actor, especially her rendition of Frida Kahlo. The best book I have read in a long time.
