Allegra Goodman is a National Book Award Finalist and the author of Intuition, a New York Times Bestseller and Notable Book of 2006. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
*A Los Angeles Times Best Book of 2008* *A Washington Post Best Book of 2008* *A Village Voice Best Book of 2008* "This beautifully written novel is a dystopian page-turner, using well-worn tropes to confront adult issues such as authoritarian government and global warming." -- Washington Post "Allegra Goodman develops her world with deft strokes, bringing together the linguistic traditions of the dystopian novel with those of classic post-disaster stories..." -- New York Times Book Review "A dark vision rendered in wonderful and imaginative detail, The Other Side of the Island is a cautionary tale that will likely be embraced by left-leaning, politically aware and environmentally conscious teens and adults alike, regardless of whether or not they read sci-fi." -- Los Angeles Times "From Kaaterskill Falls to Intuition, Goodman's fiction proves that she can tackle big subjects with unobtrusively graceful and perceptive prose. Her first YA offering, a dystopian eco-fantasy in which a malevolent Corporation lulls North America's few remaining inhabitants into complacency with memory altering substances, misinformation, fake skies and a leader named Earth Mother, is a top-notch genre piece..." --Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Gripping and creepily prescient." --Village Voice
