Heirloom tomatoes lack the hardiness of grocery store hybrid varieties. They are grown in an archaic, inbred fashion; and yet, for all their isolation, they surprise one with their dramatic shapes, colors, and intense flavors––kind of like the characters in Kate Wyer’s novel Black Krim. As the roots of their stubborn, closed systems slowly entangle, their surprising desires and tenderness bloom fiercely from these small, hard seeds.

––Jen Michalski, author of The Tide King

When Corbina finds a man standing barefoot in a field across from her farmhouse, she makes a choice that will challenge every part of her lifestyle. Black Krim follows three characters, in alternating first-person narratives, as they uncover each other’s motives and desires, as well as their own.

Kate Wyer’s Black Krim is an elegant study of alienation and reconnection—with a warm human heart beneath the Zen-like detachment of its style.

––Madison Smartt Bell
