Ernest Hemingway is in Cuba, trying to finish his final novel The Garden of Eden, a strange and prescient story that explores the boundaries of gender.

Penelope is an English professor, who, decades after Hemingway’s death, is obsessed with this book, and feels its influence on her own life and her infatuation with a young male student.

Catherine is the young wife in The Garden of Eden who speaks to us as she begins to test the confines of her fictional existence. The three narratives entwine and progress to a fascinating and moving conclusion.

EDEN is a beautiful, surprising, novel that makes us think anew about what it is to be a writer, a reader, the nature of attraction, and most fundamentally, how we use our imaginations to form ourselves.
