In 1930s New Guinea, anthropologists Nell Stone and her husband, Fen, are searching for a new case study - and a fresh start for their struggling marriage - when they cross paths with fellow anthropologist Andrew Bankson at a party. Increasingly isolated by his work and dazzled by the charismatic young couple, Andrew jumps at the chance to install them in a nearby village, where the natives' female-dominated culture reinvigorates Nell's inquisitive spirit. But as Andrew's friendship with Nell deepens, they and Fen become fixated less on the science of their work and more on the all-too-human elements - love, pride, jealousy, grief - binding them together in a delicate dance. This elegant novel, very loosely based on the life of acclaimed anthropologist Margaret Mead, presents a captivating glimpse into a lost world... even as it offers poignant insight into some of humanity's most universal experiences.
