Kindle, Nook, and Smashwords
EverGreen Circle Round Trailer Park is a place where the human comes before the law, babies are found daily in giant clam shells, and men who are about to turn ugly are tossed into a pit, naked and without weapons, so they can’t hurt anyone. Park born and bred Emma never had any plans to leave her beloved home but when she falls in love with childhood friend Robert Earle the power of their love triggers the mysterious balancing and the clueless Emma is thrust onto the path of becoming Mighty Creation.
Emma’s heart-breaking separations from Robert Earle and the Park, her opposing everywoman experiences in the straight-line world of New York City, reveal an underlying cruelty an overt meanness driving the straight-line world and noticeably absent from her beloved home. Until now. Who the players are in this increasingly dangerous game is a tangled mystery but one thing is certain. They have clearly underestimated the power of humanity’s dream and the passion of Emma Ray Earle; a woman who loves beyond all reason and whose galvanizing life has been one, long, perfect preparation for the decision she is about to make.
Gritty, spiritual, hysterically funny, and riddled with beautiful, soul-twisting lines and truths that will take your breath away. Emma is a character like no other from a place like no other with a spirituality and world mythos like no other. Dedicated to the women who will not be tamed and the men who love them, "Genesis 2: The Passion of Emma Ray Earle," is a cultural touchstone.
“Katherine Manaan has woven a phantasmagorical reawakening of the world, with a heroine unlike any in literary history and a cast of eccentric characters who arrive cataclysmically alive. Loving, whimsical, wise, sexualized, fearsome--and fearless, mostly--Emma is a new earth mother for the ages, a goddess taking us back to a garden yet to be grown.
“A unique book of inspired fantasy, mingled with hard edged reality and humor, and written with a stunningly fresh voice.”
“Part Catcher in the Rye, part Alice in Wonderland, Emma is the Erin Brockovitch of the magical trailer park set.”
