When widow Cora Seaborn relocates to Colchester, she expects to find small-minded locals and a massive, perhaps prehistoric, sea creature. But Sarah Perry's debut novel upends Cora's expectations, as well as those of everyone she meets. This one-session class will dive into the novel that the New York Times called "a novel of almost insolent ambition." We will consider Perry's complex characters and the tension between faith and science that they evidence -- or do they?
