Nina Revoyr

Nina Revoyr

Michelle LeBeau, child of a white American father and Japanese mother, lives with her grandparents in Deerhorn, Wisconsin – a small town that had been entirely white before her arrival. Rejected and bullied, Michelle spends her time reading, avoiding fights, and roaming the countryside. She idolizes her grandfather, an expert hunter and former minor-league baseball player, who is one of the town’s most respected men. This fragile peace is threatened with the arrival of the Garretts, a young black couple from Chicago. Nina Revoyr is the award-winning author of the novels The Necessary Hunger, Southland, and Age of Dreaming. In the tradition of To Kill a Mockingbird, Revoyr’s new novel examines the effects of change on a small, isolated community against the backdrop of the Vietnam War.
