LUX
-Maria Flook


It has been two years since Alden’s husband vanished. The police are convinced that he ran off and left her, but others know better. Lux, her new lover, indeed might be implicated, but he has his own troubles. He is trying to keep sober, keep a job, and keep the police from sniffing around. As Lux and Alden try to put their lives together, a charged and magical love story unfolds with “Rabelaisian comic realism and a Wordsworthian passion for nature. (It’s) an enthralling ride.” (Publishers Weekly.)


“Darkly amusing, Flook handles matters in extremis—murder, disinterment, kidnapping—with bluff naturalism.”
—Elle


“Flook is impish and inventive—my interest in Lux never faded.”
—Washington Post
