Description

Blasted is a story of Ruby Jones, an irreverent, exuberant, and troubled woman who lurches between love affairs and cities. The narrative shifts between generations and geographies, between contemporary life and stories as old as the hill that looms over Ruby’s birthplace. It mines a rich vein of experience, layering the mundane and the magical, and evoking the forces that inhabit the land.

Editorial Review

“Altogether the narrative tide of Blasted lifts its themes and characters and carries them forward in an irresistible flow. Throughout, Story writes with energy, vivacity, a lack of self-pity, a clear eye for detail, and a great sense of comic timing. This is a wonderful novel.”
