    DescriptionA warm and witty saga about agribusiness, environmental activism, and community--from the celebrated author of "My Year of Meats "and "A Tale for the Time Being" Yumi Fuller hasn't set foot in her hometown of Liberty Falls, Idaho--heart of the potato-farming industry--since she ran away at age fifteen. Twenty-five years later, the prodigal daughter returns to confront her dying parents, her best friend, and her conflicted past, and finds herself caught up in an altogether new drama. The post-millennial farming community has been invaded by Agribusiness forces at war with a posse of activists, the Seeds of Resistance, who travel the country in a camping car, "The Spudnick," biofueled by pilfered McDonald's french-fry oil. Following her widely hailed, award-winning debut novel, "My Year of Meats," Ruth Ozeki returns here to deliver a quirky cast of characters and a wickedly humorous appreciation of the foibles of corporate life, globalization, political resistance, youth culture, and aging baby boomers. "All Over Creation "tells a celebratory tale of the beauty of seeds, roots, and growth--and the capacity for renewal that resides within us all.

    Review quote
    "Hooray--Ozeki rides again."--Barbara Kingsolver "A sophisticated novel in which dread and hope coexist..." --The New York Times "Buzzes and blooms with the cross-pollination of races and subcultures, death and birth, betrayal and reconciliation, comedy and tragedy." --Los Angeles Times Book Review
