From the Publisher:

"Kingsolver is a gifted magician of words."
?Time

The extraordinary New York Times bestselling author of The Lacuna (winner of the Orange Prize), The Poisonwood Bible (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize), and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, Barbara Kingsolver returns with a truly stunning and unforgettable work. Flight Behavior is a brilliant and suspenseful novel set in present day Appalachia; a breathtaking parable of catastrophe and denial that explores how the complexities we inevitably encounter in life lead us to believe in our particular chosen truths. Kingsolver's riveting story concerns a young wife and mother on a failing farm in rural Tennessee who experiences something she cannot explain, and how her discovery energizes various competing factions?religious leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists, politicians?trapping her in the center of the conflict and ultimately opening up her world. Flight Behavior is arguably Kingsolver's must thrilling and accessible novel to date, and like so many other of her acclaimed works, represents contemporary American fiction at its finest.

Author Bio
Barbara Kingsolver
Barbara Kingsolver grew up in rural Kentucky in a family that encouraged reading and nature study, but strongly discouraged TV-watching. She studied biology at DePauw University, then spent a few years working in Europe. Curious about the American Southwest, she came home to settle in Tucson, where she eventually pursued graduate studies in ecology at the University of Arizona. After graduate school she worked as a scientific writer and a freelance journalist and, eventually, became a full-time writer. Her first novel, THE BEAN TREES, was published in 1988 to much critical acclaim, and won awards from the American Library Association, PEN, and the American Booksellers Association, among others. In addition to fiction, Kingsolver has written articles on social and environmental topics.

Praise

"[A] powerful new novel. . . . [T]he dramatic saga becomes a clarion call about climate change, too lucid and vivid for even skeptics to ignore." (starred review) 07/23/2012

"[Kingsolver's] keen grasp of delicate ecosystems--both social and natural--keeps the story convincing and compelling." 12/24/2012
