Summary
"A cook on a merchant ship comes to know and love Samsa, a woman who gives her the nickname "Boulder." When Samsa gets a job in Reykjavik and the couple decides to move in together, Samsa declares that she wants to have a child now that things are settled. She is already forty and can't bear to let the opportunity pass her by. Boulder is less enthused, but doesn't know how to say no -- and so finds herself dragged along on a journey that feels as thankless as it is alien. With motherhood changing Samsa into a stranger, Boulder must decide where her priorities lie, and whether her desire for love can ever truly trump her yearning for freedom. In <i>Boulder</i>, Eva Baltasar again demonstrates her preeminence as a chronicler of queer voices struggling to be heard in a hostile world -- and in language as brittle and beautiful as that of an ancient saga." --Back cover
