From the Publisher
In this "witty novel about family, friendship, and survival of the
fittest,"* Cathleen Schine, one of our most astute social
observers, examines the origin of species alongside the origins of
who we come to be.
In some mysterious family feud or unintended slight, Jane Barlow
Schwartz lost a friend, her cousin and soul mate Martha. But years
later, surrounded by the exotic wildlife of the Galápagos, Jane and
Martha meet again. There, amid the antics of blue-footed boobies
and red-lipped batfish, Jane sets off on a quest through her family
history to pinpoint the moment when Martha was no longer the Martha
she knew. In the process, she ponders instinct, natural selection,
and the oddities of evolution that transform us. As Barbara
Kingsolver proclaimed in the New York Times Book Review,
"We should rejoice in a rare novel like The Evolution of Jane .
. . a rollicking family saga tinged with hints of sexual
intrigue . . . Three cheers."
