Euphoria, Lily King
A gorgeous, well-written read.
King clearly did a good bit of research for Euphoria, and she skillfully transports the reader to 1930s New Guinea. The three anthropologist protagonists have delectable chemistry that kept me flipping pages, and when I wasn’t gasping at the pure romance of the lines about bread and wine and love, I was busy picturing the various tribes along the Sepik River that King portrays with expert precision.
Similar to — any nearly as exquisite as — Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder.
