Barbara Kingsolver

"La Lacuna" is the new title of Barbara Kingsolver's new novel that will be released in Nov 09. I just found out about it. I feel like I live in a vacuum sometimes, but that is another subject. Here is what Harper Collins is saying about the novel “Seven years in the making, The Lacuna is set in Mexico and the U.S. during the 1930s, 40s and 50s.", and "tells the story of Harrison William Shepherd, a man caught between two worlds—an unforgettable protagonist whose search for identity will take readers to the heart of the twentieth century’s most tumultuous events.’ And a bonus for history buffs—The Lacuna includes real-life historical figures like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Leon Trotsky—a first for Kingsolver’s fiction.” Just wanted to share my excitement.
