• National Book Award Contender Spent A Year In The Back End Of Russia For Research


Julia Phillips' debut novel "Disappearing Earth" is one of five titles on the shortlist for the 2019 National Book Award in fiction. Phillips spent a year in Kamchatka, the remote peninsula in far-eastern Russia. The novel is set in its capital, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, where two young girls go missing on a summer afternoon. The sense of isolation and of being an outsider is a driving force of the novel.
