All Over Creation

Yumi Fuller hasn't set foot in her parents' farm in Idaho since she ran away when she was fifteen. Now, twenty-five years later, the prodigal daughter - and now a struggling single mother of three - is returning home, desperate to win back the love of her ailing father and to confront her best friend and her conflicted past.
Still spirited and rebellious, she finds a world - and her parents - changed beyond recognition.
In the weeks and months to come, Yumi breathes life back into her parents' farm. And with the arrival of a group of young anti-GM activists, the Seeds of Resistance, she finds herself caught up in a new revolution.
All Over Creation is a moving exploration of the dichotomies of love and responsibility and a celebratory tale of the capacity for renewal that resides within us all.

Zitat
* Ozeki is a deeply intelligent and humane writer -- Alice Sebold, author of Lovely Bones * One of my favourite novelists -- Junot Diaz * All Over Creation opens wider with every plot twist as it moves from tenderness to comedy to sobering truth and the world in the eye of one family's storm -- Barbara Kingsolver * Captivating ... Ozeki joins the constellation of such environmentally aware writers as Barbara Kingsolver, Annie Proulx and Margaret Atwood, bringing her own shrewd and playful humour, luscious sexiness and kinetic pizazz Chicago Tribune * A well-crafted, often comic story of the personal and political Observer * A nice blend of humour and strangely affecting optimism. Ozeki has written a book where dread and hope coexist. Neither is given short shrift or magicked away New York Times * Highly original Daily Mail * Amusing, moving and delicately controlled Big Issue * Ruth Ozeki is bent on taking the novel into corners of American culture no one else has thought to look - but where she finds us in all our technological weirdness. With a combination of humour and pathos that is all her own, Ozeki brings the American pastoral forward into the age of agribusiness and genetic engineering. The result is a smart compelling novel about a world we don't realise we live in -- Michael Pollan * A feast for mind and heart Kirkus Reviews * This quirky novel is bewitching... The fruits of this mix are definitely worth tasting Publishers Weekly
