The Seaplane on Final Approach

Rebecca Rukeyser

I didn’t realize how much I needed this lusty, funny, heart-breaking book until I devoured it in a single sitting … A sharp, flawless debut' - Carmen Maria Machado, author of Her Body and Other Parties


Mira, a young woman fascinated with sleaze, finds work on a remote Alaskan island at the far edges of the Kodiak archipelago. The Lavender Island Wilderness Lodge, run by the indomitable Maureen and her gregarious husband Lew, is a converted homestead that sells its international guests a fantasy - a taste of life on the untamed frontier.

But the pristine natural beauty of Alaska soon reveals a wilderness of conflicted human desire and, as Mira nurses an erotic obsession, the other residents of Lavender Island are making plans and taking steps that will tear apart the island’s seeming paradise.
