Euphoria by Lily King, 256 pages

"Euphoria" was inspired by events in the life of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead.

Set in New Guinea in the mid-1930s, the novel tells the story of three anthropologists: the young marrieds, Nell Stone and Schuyler Fenwick and the lonely Andrew Bankson.  They are all fascinated with each other, professional and personally.

This is a lush, richly written and intriguing novel.  Just right for a book club discussion.
