Continental Drift

Continental Drift

“The most convincing portrait I know of contemporary America . . . a great American novel.” — James Atlas, The Atlantic Monthly

From acclaimed author Russell Banks, a masterful novel of hope lost and gaineda gripping, indelible story of fragile lives uprooted and transformed by injustice, disappointment, and the seductions and realities of the American dream.

Banks's searing tale of uprootedness, migration, and exploitation in contemporary America brings together two of the dominant realms of his fiction—New England and the Caribbean—skillfully braided into one taut narrative. Continental Drift is the story of a young blue-collar worker and family man who abandons his broken dreams in New Hampshire and the story of a young Haitian woman who, with her nephew and baby, flees the brutal injustice and poverty of her homeland.

Continental Drift is a powerful literary classic from one of contemporary fiction's most important writers.
