Gabriel Tallent - My Absolute Darling

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 16, 2017 at 1:00 pm

Tallent’s debut novel introduces fourteen-year-old Turtle Alveston, a character as stoic and withdrawn as her name suggests. Her mother is dead, her father is emotionally unapproachable—and possibly dangerous—and Turtle spends her days wandering alone along the Northern California coast. Then she meets friendly, normal Jacob and begins to get a new perspective on her life. She discovers she has feelings other than pain and loneliness and sees that she has options. As vividly described as it is deeply imagined, Tallent’s book is both an affecting love story and a compelling page-turner.
