The Evolution of Jane

The Evolution of Jane

by Cathleen Schine

  • LITERATURE
  • 2011
  • PAPER
  • 256 PAGES

Out and about in Galapagos, this is the novel of a recently divorced young woman and her discoveries on Darwin's Islands. Set in the Galapagos, the author has done her homework well. The book mixes psychological insights with straightforward travelogue and some heady commentary on modern evolutionary theory. Under the cover of Darwin's theory of evolution, it's really about the nature of friendship. Put it on the shelf next to Vonnegut's fanciful "Galapagos, a Novel" (Item GPS10) a perennial bestseller.  (GPS30, $14.95)
