The Lacuna, by Barbara Kingsolver

The master novelist reflects on civil liberties and celebrity in a multi-layered literary novel that weaves together the McCarthy era, Mexico, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, Trotsky, and others–all as a background to the story of Harrison Shepherd, an engaging character you will care about.   It may be a little slow in the beginning, but if you stick with it, you’ll be glad you did.  Share your thoughts on this book by commenting here.
