All the Living

(Fiction; Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2009)

Aloma, the young woman at the heart of C. E. Morgan’s debut, is rootless at the age of twenty. Orphaned young and raised at a mission school in rural Kentucky, she has no family and no friends. She has never lived in a house. She has seen so little that she does not know where to start wanting. Who are you when you are not defined by home? Aloma, a feisty, frustrating character, and Morgan, a talented and generous writer, try to figure that out.
