The Taiga Syndrome by Christina Rivera Garza

Join us for our first online book club! On April 8, we will discuss The Taiga Syndrome by Christina Rivera Garza. You will receive an email with instructions on how to access the Zoom meeting once you have RSVP’d.

“A fairy tale run amok, The Taiga Syndrome follows an unnamed Ex-Detective as she searches for a couple who has fled to the far reaches of the earth. A betrayed husband is convinced by a brief telegram that his second ex-wife wants him to track her down—that she wants to be found. He hires the Ex-Detective, who sets out with a translator into a snowy, hostile forest where strange things happen and translation betrays both sense and one’s senses. Tales of Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood haunt the Ex-Detective’s quest into a territory overrun with the primitive excesses of Capitalism—accumulation and expulsion, corruption and cruelty—though the lessons of her journey are more experiential than moral: that just as love can fly away, sometimes unloving flies away as well. That sometimes leaving everything behind is the only thing left to do.” Read about the author here.

To order the book, fill out our online order form here ($16 plus $5 shipping and handling).
