The novel takes place on the shores of the Salton Sea, an inland saline lake in California, and the landscape is not only a character in its own right, but really shapes the development of the plot. For the paperback release, S&S put together a slideshow of photos by photographer Joan Myers, along with some of the praise for the book. I couldn’t get the darn thing to embed (WordPress being hateful of flash objects), but here’s the link. Happy viewing!
