"Densely symbolic, unsentimental, and eloquent, Palm’s book explores the connections between yearning, desire, and homecoming with subtlety and lucidity. The result is a narrative that maps the complex relationships that exist between individual identity and place. An intelligent, evocative, and richly textured memoir." --Kirkus Reviews
Angela's memoir-in-essays, Riverine: A Memoir from Anywhere but Here, is forthcoming from Graywolf Press in August 2016.
As a girl in rural Indiana, Angela Palm finds a kindred spirit in the boy next door. But in this landscape of flood and drought, where she’s forever an outsider, their relationship could never blossom. Though the current of Palm’s life carries her toward a new future in art, she’s still drawn home. But going back means confronting the boy she loved, who is serving a life sentence for murder, and discovering that the place she left behind will never release its hold on her.
