After enduring, from afar, a seemingly endless series of worldwide disasters - including 9/11 and the asian tsunami - while living in earthquake-prone Los Angeles, bereft Katrina experiences deep inner longings for some sense of permanence, meaning and intimacy. A pre-school teacher contemplating the unsettling challenges of her mid-life, she finds solace in her dear friend Grace and conflict in the arms of narcissistic yoga intstructor Jasper. Quakeland speaks in a deeply stirring female voice to an unspoken sense of universal longing quietly prevalent today.
