Read full description of the books:
Winner of the 2007 Gival Press Novel Award Twelve Rivers of the Body lyrically evokes downtown Washington, DC in the 1980s, before the real estate boom and before gentrification, as the city limped from one crisis to another; crack addiction, AIDS, a crumbling infrastructure. This beautifully evoked novel traces Elena's imperfect struggle, like her adopted city's, to find wholeness and healing.
