Staff Reviews

This stunning novel fictionalizes the shameful real life 1912 displacement of the racially diverse residents of an island off Maine, after enduring as a racially integrated community for over a century. The triumph of This Other Eden isn't just that Harding traces the history of the island and its people and offers both a condemnation and a warning, it is that he does so with luminous, poetic prose and characters who are bursting with aliveness and distinction. A moving account of community, displacement, and dignity, This Other Eden is both a thing of haunting beauty and a harrowing tale of the insidious effects of racism. Shane loves!
