Rachel King’s novel, People Along the Sand, about the pleasures and limits
of solitude for five distinct and deeply human characters, centered around the passing
of the 1967 Beach Bill, the legislation that made all Oregon beaches public land,
is available for preorder. You can buy it on Bookshop, Barnes&Noble, Powell’s, or Amazon,
or order it directly from your local bookstore.
Kathleen Rooney, author of Cher Ami and Major Whittlesey, says,
“Profoundly attuned to the natural environment and its impact on all those who live there,
Rachel King’s vivid People Along the Sand takes a lucid and discerning look at how people
can belong to a place and whether or not a place can really belong to a person.”
Rachel King’s short stories have appeared in One Story,
Green Mountains Review, North American Review, and elsewhere,
and her poetry chapbook Between Work and Light is available from Dancing Girl Press.
