Publisher's Summary

Now available for the first time in audiobook format, a powerful literary classic from one of contemporary fiction's most acclaimed and important writers. Russell Banks' Continental Drift is a masterful novel of hope lost and gained and a gripping, indelible story of fragile lives uprooted and transformed by injustice, disappointment, and the seductions and realities of the American dream.

A Favorite writer fizzles

Hard to believe that Banks wrote this tedious tale. The parts that involve the struggling working class family that packs it in and moves to Florida, is engrossing and realistic but the part that starts following Haitian culture, characters and plot twists bored the pants off me. The book became its own metaphor: drift, drift, drift.
