National Book Award Contender Spent A Year In The Back End Of Russia For Research

2019-11-21 04:08:00

Julia Phillips' debut novel "Disappearing Earth" is one of five titles on the shortlist for the 2019 National Book Award in fiction. Phillips spent a year in Kamchatka, the remote peninsula in far-eastern Russia. The novel is set in its capital, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, where two young girls go missing on a summer afternoon. The sense of isolation and of being an outsider is a driving force of the novel. Business Insider report the novel's women struggle to adapt to new environments, and to carry on living lives that have lost logic. Sometimes, they even look in on themselves as outsiders in their own bodies. The winners of the National Book Award will be announced on Wednesday, November 20th, 2019.
