Baker & Taylor
Poland's greatest living actress leads a utopian community to the wilds of 1876 California, where she will struggle to maintain love, hope, and idealism in the harsh reality of the American West.

Blackwell North Amer
In America is about many things: a woman's search for self-transformation; the fate of idealism; a life in the theatre; the many varieties of love; and, not least of all, stories and storytelling itself. Operatic in the scope and intensity of the emotions it depicts (Minnie from Puccini's Girl of the Golden West makes a startling appearance), richly detailed and visionary in its account of America, and peopled with unforgettable characters, In America is Susan Sontag's largest achievement.
