Description

A searing coming-of-age novel set to the music of chance

In lyric, diamond-cut prose, Selah Saterstrom revisits the pastoral, dead-end Southern town of Beau Repose, following our strung-out, fiercely intelligent narrator through her harrowing adolescence and into the academic halls and back alleys of Scotland. As the feverish St. Vitus’s dance of her youth morphs into slow-motion inertia abroad, an illness brings her home again—to face the legacy of pain she left behind and to find a way to become the lead in a dance of her own creation.
