A Richer Dust

A Richer Dust


Quick Overview:



finalist for ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Award, 2008

An attempt to establish a new world Utopia in the American Southwest succumbs to a clash of genders and cultures in this subtly compelling historical novel, the authors debut. Boaz takes inspiration from the life of D.H. Lawrence and the painter who accompanied him and his German wife to forge a new life free from the cultural contaminations of supposedly civilized England. Readers need know nothing about Lawrence and his circle to become engrossed in this evocative tale. Kirkus

"A spare lyricism that makes the sparse New Mexico landscape gloriously vivid; and page-turning suspense in the charged Doll-Abe-Vera triangle mark this as an accomplished first novel by a gifted stylist. In the touching denouement, Boaz brings the three phases of Doll's life together with subtlety and warm humor. Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Boazs diamond-cut debut moves with brisk authority between three time periods: Dolls aristocratic upbringing in pre-WWI London, her ill-fated impulsive voyage with Abe and Vera, and her spirited dotage, where she finds love with an eccentric younger man. A superb stylist, Boaz ferrets out the sometimes sinister nature of good intentions." Entertainment Weekly

"Lush, lyrical, and fully imagined, Amy Boaz has written a stunning debut novel." Claire Cook, author of Life's a Beach and Must Love Dogs
