The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it -- from garden seeds to Scripture -- is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

"Compelling, lyrical and utterly believable." - Chicago Tribune

"Haunting..A novel of character, a narrative shaped by keen-eyed women." - Front page, Verlyn Klinkenborg, New York Times Book Review

"Kingsolver's powerful new book is actually an old-fashioned 19th-century novel, a Hawthornian tale of sin and redemption and the `dark necessity' of history." - Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

"Most impressive are the humor and insight with which Kingsolver describes a global epic, proving just how personal the political can be." - Glamour
