THE NEW NOVEL

IN THE LAND OF
NO RIGHT ANGLES

by
DAPHNE BEAL
"An unpredictable journey of the spirit and the flesh. . . . [An] enchanting, at times perilous, tale of love, magic, and illusion."
ā€” Lisa Shea, Elle
"Equal parts coming-of-age quest and travelogue, this debut novel dazzles most with its deft descriptions, which transform an unimaginably foreign land into terra cognita."
ā€” Publisher's Weekly (starred review)
"Beal, like a new-generation Paul Bowles, targets an essential American naivete....[her] richly textured story conjures a friendship as intimate as it is impossible."
ā€” Megan O'Grady, Vogue
