When Doll, a British painter just out of art school at Slade, arrives in New Mexico in 1924, she is certain only of her faith in the man who invited her: social philosopher Abe Bronstone, who has left Britain to found a model society in Taos.
A Richer Dust is an enticing debut novel by Amy Boaz. Set in the backdrops of World War 1, the narrative focuses on an iconoclastic woman, Doll, who migrates with a social philosopher and her wife for a fresh new life. The plot changes dramatically as she gets involved in a physical affair with a younger geek.
Lawrence’s 1924 pilgrimage to Taos, . where he hoped to create an artists’ utopia, Amy Boaz’s diamond-cut debut, A Richer Dust, follows Doll, a shy, near-deaf painter who accompanies brooding philosopher Abe Bronstone and his querulous German wife, Vera, from London to Taos. Boaz moves with brisk authority between three time periods: Doll’s aristocratic upbringing in pre-WWI London, her ill-fated, impulsive voyage with Abe and Vera, and her spirited dotage, where she finds love with an eccentric younger man.
