Azimuths

By R. A. Morean

Literary fiction, General fiction | Paperback, Hardback, eBook


"R. A. Morean's Azimuths features five women who live in a trailer park on the edge of the Mojave Desert, where there are no seasons. The possibility of change, though, is something this unforgettable cast of characters longs for and fears. The writing is spot on lyrical and full of grit exactly when it needs to be. This is a novel that will stay with you long after the final page." --Lee Martin, author of The Bright Forever, finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Raceway Trailer Park sits on the lip of the Mojave. What sifts under the sand are mysteries a fossilized whale, a particle accelerator, and calculated dreams of escape. Above live five unique women: Hattie, who tries to find her dead mother's face in her own; Kinni, the veiled survivor of Nagasaki; Melody, the orphan who nurses wayward children; Lani, who uses a camera to create distances; and Oxena, who can t decide if she loves or hates her husband of forty years. And the men struggle with the bloodstain of history. A story of emotional and physical paralysis, Azimuths unfolds as voices converge. Each character remains on a singular trajectory, yet all are connected as they try to figure out who and why to love and how to move forward with their lives.
