Praise for Riverine: A Memoir from Anywhere but Here
“[A] perceptive memoir.”
―Oprah.com, Powerful Memoirs by Powerful Women
“Riverine digs deep into the soil of the past―river soil, corn field soil, flooded soil and stubborn soil―to find not only the roots of the future, in all of its mysterious convolutions and divergences, but also the possibility of futures that never came to pass. Angela Palm’s gorgeous candor sings urgently through these pages, her prose a tuning fork offering frequencies I’d never heard before.”
―Leslie Jamison, author of The Empathy Exams
“Palm emerges from these pages as someone who holds on firmly to the first boy she ever fell in love with, someone who forges a new life for herself while never forgetting where she comes from. There’s a flickering beauty to her stubbornness, like the reflection of late afternoon sun in a river. . . . Reading this tale, we can all remember lost loves and ponder the might-have-beens.”
