'Kingsolver is a gifted magician of words.'
—Time

The extraordinary New York Times bestselling author of The Lacuna (winner of the Orange Prize), The Poisonwood Bible (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize), and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, Barbara Kingsolver returns with a truly stunning and unforgettable work.

Flight Behavior is a brilliant and suspenseful novel set in present day Appalachia; a breathtaking parable of catastrophe and denial that explores how the complexities we inevitably encounter in life lead us to believe in our particular chosen truths. Kingsolver's riveting story concerns a young wife and mother on a failing farm in rural Tennessee who experiences something she cannot explain, and how her discovery energizes various competing factions—religious leaders, climate scientists, environmentalists, politicians—trapping her in the center of the conflict and ultimately opening up her world.

Flight Behavior is arguably Kingsolver's most thrilling and accessible novel to date, and like so many other of her acclaimed works, represents contemporary American fiction at its finest.

    Thank you for this book Barbara! I laughed and cried, found insights that led me to consider some of my own ideas and decisions. Fascinating facts and entertainment throughout!

    I liked this book. found the butterflies interesting.

    I admire Barbara Kingsolver - she is able of touching the most sensitive topics - poverty, lack of education, climate change, the human damage to nature - and do it all with such a personal wonderful story. She did the same with other topics in the Posionwood Bible, and since then I decided to read as many of her books that I can find. I fell in love with Dellarobia, found a lot of interest in the Monarch butterflies (all information is correct and it is worth visiting a site where you can see them), reminded myself of the magic of science, investigation and look at things from a different point of view. Kingsolver is an artist in telling stories from the eyes of the main character, and a bigger artist in making the reader think.
