"[A] chilling . . . tale about humans who gamely follow their own worst instincts."—Chicago TribuneLed by a charismatic and slightly unhinged woman, a group of environmentalists wrest control over a small South Pacific island in hopes of cultivating it into their own private Eden. But paradise is not quite what it seems in this "searing" (Kirkus Reviews) send-up of environmentalism, feminism, and extremism of all sorts.
