From New England Book Award winner Lily King comes a breathtaking novel
about three young anthropologists of the '30's caught in a passionate
love triangle that threatens their bonds, their careers, and,
ultimately, their lives.
English anthropologist Andrew Bankson has
been alone in the field for several years, studying the Kiona river
tribe in the Territory of New Guinea. Haunted by the memory of his
brothers' deaths and increasingly frustrated and isolated by his
research, Bankson is on the verge of suicide when a chance encounter
with colleagues, the controversial Nell Stone and her wry and mercurial
Australian husband Fen, pulls him back from the brink. Nell and Fen have
just fled the bloodthirsty Mumbanyo and, in spite of Nell's poor
health, are hungry for a new discovery. When Bankson finds them a new
tribe nearby, the artistic, female-dominated Tam, he ignites an
intellectual and romantic firestorm between the three of them that burns
out of anyone's control.
Set between two World Wars and inspired by
events in the life of revolutionary anthropologist Margaret Mead,
"Euphoria" is an enthralling story of passion, possession, exploration,
and sacrifice from accomplished author Lily King.
