Waterborne

Bruce Murkoff

The Washington Post Book World raves, “Waterborne is a formidable achievement, an engrossing story, masterfully told.” During the Great Depression, three lost souls meet one another at Boulder Dam, a massive engineering project in the midst of the Nevada desert. Each is drawn there for a different reason, but they have all been haunted by tragedy. The transformation of nature mirrors the changes in their lives. “... a gorgeously written, Steinbeck-like saga that is part thriller, part romance, and part social critique, replete with blissful and brutal sexuality, unbridled prejudice, and acts of both kindness and mayhem.”—Booklist, starred review
