Melinda Moustakis

“Spare and exquisite, tough and lovely” – The New York Times

From NATIONAL BOOK FOUNDATION 5 UNDER 35 HONOREE and FLANNERY O’CONNOR AWARD WINNER Melinda Moustakis, a debut novel set in 1950’s Alaska, about the turbulent marriage of two unlikely homesteaders.

Homestead is a beautiful novel, quiet as a snowfall, warm as a glowing wood stove. …Admirers of Marilynne Robinson and Alice Munro are bound to appreciate.”

“Inspired by Moustakis’ own family history and set during the Alaskan Territory’s bid for statehood, this stunning debut novel considers what it truly means to own land.”
