Summary

Girl in Landscape offers a genre-bending, mind-expanding tale of a new frontier. Jonathan Lethem’s novel is a science-fiction Western that evokes both the brooding tragedy of John Ford’s The Searchers and the sexual precocity of Nabokov’s Lolita.

Lethem’s heroine is 14-year-old Pella Marsh, whose mother dies just as her family flees a post-apocalyptic Brooklyn for the frontier of a recently discovered planet.
