Inhaltsangabe:

"Skillful and perceptive . . . A complex portrait of a woman under the influence: of love, then obsession." "The New York Times Book Review "(Editors' Choice)
The year is 1981. The United States has just installed Ronald Reagan in the White House, and Cressida Hartley, a Ph.D. candidate in economics, has relocated to her parents' A-frame in the Sierras. There, she plans to finish her dissertation on art in the marketplace, but instead Cress finds herself drawn into the life of this small community and into the orbit of Jakey Yates, the owner of the local lodge. When she takes a part-time job with a contractor, she meets the Morrow brothers, and her distractions begin to multiply.
As Cress falls prey to her own perilous reasoning, she strays into dark new territory, where she becomes subject to uncontrollable forces from both within and without. At once sharply observed and utterly enthralling, "Off Course" evokes the pull of an intense, impossible connection and reveals what happens when two people can't let go of one another or their previous commitments."

Rezension: Praise for "Blame""Unfold[s] like a thriller, creating a sense of urgency and mystery even about everyday matters . . . Huneven's prose moves like a hummingbird, in small bursts that are improbably fast and graceful."--Maria Russo, "The New York Times Book Review""[An] elegant, hair-raising novel . . . Huneven's prose is flawless."--"The New Yorker""The satisfactions "Blame "offers readers are elegant prose and, deeper than""that aesthetic pleasure, the intelligence and compassion Huneven brings to""her characters. She holds them all with the utmost tenderness."--Brigitte Frase, "Los Angeles Times"

Huneven is not interested in literary pretension or postmodern razzle-dazzle, but in achieving a measure of truth-- and her generous, engaging novel does just that."--Valerie Sayers, "The New York Times Book Review"

Praise for "Off Course""Huneven, a writer of great empathy and emotional precision, doesn't resort to cheap moralizing here. Such easy lessons would give this gracefully written novel the harsh sting of a cheap, cautionary tale. Instead, she lets her characters play out their scenarios like real adults must -- weighing the pleasures of the present against their own future guilt..." --"The Los Angeles Times""[Huneven's] prose exudes such a rumpled, sensuous vibe, it practically gives you bedhead." --"Los Angeles Magazine""Michelle Huneven delivers an enthralling tale of impulsive decisions, impossible love, and catastrophic consequences." --"Bustle""The greatest triumph of "Off Course" lies in Huneven's remarkable ability to create a mood, and to bring the reader fully inside it." --"The Huffington Post""Sensitive, reflective and uncomfortably true to life, with a wonderfully rich cast of supporting characters." --"Kirkus" (starred review)Praise for "Blame" "Unfold[s] like a thriller, creating a sense of urgency and mystery even about everyday matters . . .
