The Lost Scrapbook is a story of the shattering of community in modern America—and a vision of reconstitution. The novel brings together stories of people who, unbeknownst to one another, are all somehow involved in a search for precisely the same thing. And as the characters tell their tales—like musical variations on such themes as apartness and belonging, unity and diversity$#151we learn about the object of their quest: a mysterious scrapbook.

The novel's culmination is a true tour-de-force, recounting a confrontation between a trusting city and the local manufacturing company that both sustains and betrays it.

Exploring the interface between ecology and social justice, The Lost Scrapbook is broadly inclusive and fabulously inventive- biodiversity made into fiction. It is a triumph of ecological storytelling.
