The Land of Is
A powerful, sprawling tale of a woman betrayed, 'The Land of Is' pulls the reader into a not-so-brave New World rising from the rubble of the American Empire. Wicla the Singer writes to her children to tell them why she murdered their father. She tells them of her life growing up on the broken roads of the US west coast with her mother, the legendary Trader Merri Weer, and how she became a Dylan-like folk hero to a vast legion of dispirited Americans. She recounts how, through their father's myriad betrayals, the world she lived in was lost. Read together with their father's testimony in 'The Summit of Us', a scintillating companion novel, Wicla's letter sounds as a searing elegy of truth.
