About the book: I'm From Nowhere follows Claire as she mourns the sudden death of her husband. She has no child, no job, no agency. She confronts a dying planet and an emerging sense of self. She puts herself in the hands of men—some of her oldest friends—who may have come to save her, a contemporary Penelope with a raft of suitors and unspent erotic capital. Is it possible for a woman to reclaim her life and set its terms without succumbing to suicide or submission? At once intimate and sprawling, this book is an examination of the stories we are told--and the stories we tell ourselves--about identity, permanence, and meaning in our beautiful, hostile world.
