Infinity in the Palm of Her Hand

A Novel of Adam and Eve

By Gioconda Belli

Harper, Hardcover, 9780061673641, 224pp.

Publication Date: March 1, 2009


The internationally bestselling author and poet offers a wholly creative reimagining of the biblical story of Adam and Eve.

Prepare to enter a fascinating, primitive universe that goes back to the very beginning, to the story upon which Western civilization is based. Poetry and mystery go hand in hand in this transcendent novel about mankind, as never before imagined. Join Adam and Eve as they discover the world for themselves, feel their confusion and panic when they face punishment, and observe in awe as they experience the power to give life and, eventually, the ability to take it away to survive.

Gioconda Belli's beguiling and soulfully rewarding novel is a parable that captures our own time and our own uncertain future.
