Carolyn Chute (born 1947) is an American writer, Conservative, and populist political activist strongly identified with the culture of poor, rural western Maine. She is a recipient of the PEN New England Award.
Like her first, well received novel, The Beans of Egypt (1985), this eccentric multi-generational family saga is also set in Egypt, Maine.
Cloth is tight, bright, and very clean. Likewise, the dust jacket (unclipped) is bright and clean with a few hints of edgewear.
