Ghosting after them are rumors of a visionary dowser—a diviner for water—and his fans, who whispers say have shaped a colony on the fringe of a mysterious sea of dunes.
Immensely relocating, profoundly disquieting, and mind-blowingly unique, Watkins's novel explores the myths we think approximately others and inform approximately ourselves, the double-edged energy of our such a lot adored relationships, and the form of desire in a precarious destiny which may be our own.
