The Debut Novel of
The American Book Award Winning Poet
In Red Weather, Janet McAdams' lovely, lyrical first novel, her young Native American protagonist, Neva, travels
to a small Central American country, in the hopes of learning what she needs to know about her family. Neva's story evolves slowly, through a
mosaic of beautifully rendered moments set against the somber backdrop of revolution. McAdams writes exquisite, crystalline prose, and Neva's
story is both moving and elegiac.
