twenty-seven countries to date, about a young girl growing up in
On a seemingly ordinary Saturday morning, Julia and her family wake
to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of
the earth has suddenly begun to slow. Set against this threat to
normal life, The Age of Miracles maps the
effects of catastrophes big and small on the lives of ordinary
people, and in particular, one young girl. Extraordinary for its
original concept, unforgettable characters, and the grace, elegance
and beauty of Karen Thompson Walker''s prose, The Age of
Miracles is a mesmerizing story of family
turmoil, young love, and coming-of-age set against an upending of
life as we know it.
