At the Far End of Nowhere
In this hauntingly unconventional, coming-of-age novel, young baby boomer Lissa Power struggles to find her footing as tumultuous events transform the world—Cold War, political assassinations, Vietnam War, peace protests, civil rights, women’s liberation. Lissa is raised by her father, Stouten—a watchmaker, inventor, and mechanical wizard old enough to be her grandfather. Stouten’s stories transport Lissa back to his nineteenth century childhood —a much quieter time, but not an idyllic one.
