“A tale so vivid, intricate, and intimate that it puts high-def TV to shame.”—Elle
Pam Houston’s latest takes us from one breathtaking precipice to the next as we unravel the story of Pam (a character not unlike the author), a fearless traveler aiming to leave her metaphorical baggage behind as she seeks a comfort zone in the air. With the help of a loyal cast of friends, body workers, and a new partner who inspires her to appreciate home, she finally finds something like ground under her feet.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 21, 2011 – Writing teacher Pam has a comfortable life that allows her the flexibility and freedom to travel the world, usually with her boyfriend, Ethan. However, she realizes that Ethan can t commit and discovers that he s still involved with former girlfriends. Once she learns this, Pam turns to her friends to evaluate her needs, desires, and priorities. She finds a new partner, Rick, who has an adorable seven-year-old daughter, Madison. Pam inexplicably bonds with Madison, but this new relationship also means struggling with Rick s ex-wife and her continuing influence over Rick s life. Pam starts to feel like she has to choose between her nomadic lifestyle and the life she s building with Rick and Madison. Instead of a proper novel, Houston s (Cowboys Are My Weakness) latest reads more like a collection of delicately framed and delightful vignettes. With the narrative jumping from place to place, readers will feel like they too are touring the world. However, despite well-crafted prose, Pam feels curiously absent from the emotion of the story, which prevents readers from investing in her relationships or life choices.
