Synopsis

Fiction. NIN is a mystical, mythical, magical fable set in the high-tech, modern-day world of air travel, telephones, computers, and the World Wide Web. Nin Creed is a feminist poet embarking upon a quixotic journey to recover the lost writings of her late mother, a scholar and linguist, who died the day she was born. Traveling from Minnesota to Israel in search of her mother's life and work, Nin finds herself accompanied upon her pilgramage by a few of the legions of women writers who lived and wrote centuries ago and whose work, too, was lost to future generations of writers and readers. NIN reassures us that women's literary lineage is vital and unbroken. As we follow the heroine's search for her mother, we discover with her a host of spiritual mothers eager to befriend and empower us. They ask only that we be equally imaginative and daring -- Diane Wolkstein.
