Dana Spiotta's "scintillating" (The Seattle Times) and "singularly powerful and provocative" (The Boston Globe) novel Eat the Document was shortlisted for the National Book Award, and she has received a Guggenheim Fellowship and both the coveted Rome Prize and the Rosenthal Foundation Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In Stone Arabia, she has written a fascinating and intrepid novel about family, obsession, memory, and the urge to create, in isolation, at the margins of our celebrity-based culture.In the sibling relationship, "there are no first impressions, no seductions, no getting to know each other." For Nic and Denise, now in their forties, no relationship is more significant. They grew up in Los Angeles in the late seventies and early eighties. Nic was always the artist, always wrote music, always had a band. Now he makes his art in private, obsessively documenting his work, but never testing it in the world. Denise remains Nic's most passionate and acute audience, sometimes his only audience. She is also her family's defense against the world's fragility, and as the two of them age, their vulnerabilities escalate.
