So,MoreFordlandia is a haunting, evocative novel, a mysterious, lyrical tale at whose core lies a tiny nugget of fact: In 1929, Henry Ford, presiding in flinty authority over his automobile empire, grew tired of the British monopoly on Brazilian rubber.

So, with his signature hubris, Ford decided he would produce his own rubber, and set about colonizing the Amazon, ultimately investing millions and founding an entire city around his plantation. The name of the city was Fordlandia. Surrounding this granule of historical curiosity is a rich, captivating fable that explores the fundamental struggle between man and the natural world. Sguiglias exquisitely imagined Fordlandia is a town of characters by turns engaging and enigmatic, who will draw the reader into their various worlds so effortlessly and ingenuously that their dreams, discoveries, and downfalls begin to seem as immediate and piercing as ones own.
