Salton Sea and The God of War

Some of you may remember me raving about meeting Marisa Silver at Winter Institute 2008 — if not, Silver is the author of the excellent novel The God of War, recently released in paperback.

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!
