In her enthralling new novel--once again based on a real story--Sontag shows us our own country on the cusp of modernity.In 1876 a group of Poles led by Maryna Zalewska, Polands greatest actress, travel to California to found a utopian commune.

Maryna, who has renounced her career, is accompanied by her small son and husband- in her entourage is a rising young writer who is in love with her. The novel portrays a West that is still largely empty, where white settlers confront native Californians and Asian coolies. The image of America, and of California--as fantasy, as escape, as radical simplification--constantly meets a more complex reality. The commune fails and most of the émigrés go home, but Maryna stays and triumphs on the American stage.In America is a big, juicy, surprising book--about a womans search for self-transformation, about the fate of idealism, about the world of the theater--that will captivate its readers from the first page.

It is Sontags most delicious, most brilliant achievement.In America is the winner of the 2000 National Book Award for Fiction.
