Book Overview
A novel of impressive scope and complexity, American Woman is a thoughtful, meditative interrogation of...history and politics, of power and racism, and finally, of radicalism ( San Francisco Chronicle ), perfect for readers who love Emma Cline's novel, The Girls. On the lam for an act of violence against the American government, twenty-five-year-old Jenny Shimada agrees to care for three younger fugitives whom a shadowy figure from her former radical life has spirited out of California. One of them, the kidnapped granddaughter of a wealthy newspaper magnate in San Francisco, has become a national celebrity for embracing her captors' ideology and joining their revolutionary cell. A brilliant read ... astonishing in its honesty and confidence ( Denver Post ), American Woman explores the psychology of the young radicals, the intensity of their isolated existence, and the paranoia and fear that undermine their ideals.
