Description
"From the author of the National Book Award longlisted epic The Great Offshore Grounds, the debut novel about activism, police violence, and white guilt that boldly launched her career--itself the winner of the PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize for fiction. Theworld is on fire, and Della doesn't know what, if anything, she should do about it. The America Della lives in is poised on the brink of war. Curfews and other restrictions give the police an excuse for violence. Customers at the vaguely vegan cafe whereDella is working after dropping out of grad school debate which foreign countries are the best to flee to: Costa Rica? Bali? Della's parents--former revolutionaries--are more excited at the idea of her brother and his Black wife giving them biracial grandbabies than in engaging in any new actions; her nominally activist coworkers are mostly devoted to planning a massive sex party. Della floats between them, lost and numb. Then a bomb goes off: some shallow place of capitalistic worship demolished. Inspired, for reasons not entirely clear to herself, Della calls in a second--fake--bomb threat. But a bomb goes off there, too, and soon Della finds herself pulled in by a group of people who, for once, are promising to actually do something. No matter the consequences"--
