Bitter Lake

a novel by Ann Harleman


“The disappearance of Gort Hutchins, an ethereal presence on whom his family nonetheless pivots, sets off a chaotic search for the truth, not only of what happened to him but of why he holds an almost mystical grip on the hearts of those who love him…. Harleman trawls deep, treasure-filled waters in Bitter Lake.” — Boston Globe

“Thick with family secrets and sadnessess…verbal razzle-dazzle… mystery… Harleman is a dexterous writer.” — New York Times

“This is one fine writer.” — Rosellen Brown, author of Before and After
