General Note:
Subtitle from book jacket.
"A Borzoi book."
Summary, etc.:
"A love story set in the foothills of Appalachia about two very different people--Owen, from Kentucky, and Alma, the daughter of Bosnian immigrants--navigating the entanglements of class and identify in an America coming apart at the seams."-- Provided by publisher.
In the run-up to the 2016 election, aspiring writer Owen Callahan moves back to Kentucky to live with his Trump-supporting uncle and grandfather. He takes a job as a groundskeeper at a small local college, in exchange for which he is permitted to take a writing course. There he meets Alma Hazdic, a writer in residence who seems to have everything Owen lacks: a prestigious position, an Ivy League education, success as a writer. As they begin a secret relationship, Alma-- who comes from a liberal family of Bosnian immigrants-- struggles to understand Owen's fraught relationship with family and home. -- adapted from jacket.
