Jess Row, author of the novel YOUR FACE IN MINE and WHITE FLIGHTS: RACE, FICTION, AND THE AMERICAN IMAGINATION, is THE NEW EARTH, about a fractured Manhattan family of eccentrics, intellectuals and spiritual seekers who reunite for the wedding of their only living daughter, an immigration lawyer, to an undocumented immigrant from Chiapas. The novel has many strands—from Holocaust art to the Zapatistas, from Buddhist logic to American immigrant law, climate change to the sensibility of northeastern liberals. The book will be published by Ecco in 2022.
