Capacious, unsentimental, and yet forgiving,Ultraviolet brings us both the intimacy of womens lives and their trajectories across continents and generations. This is Suzanne Matson at her wisest and deepestwonderful.Gish Jen, author ofThe Girl at the Baggage Claim

Suzanne Matsons engrossing and intimate new novel,Ultraviolet, centers on Kathrynthe daughter of Elsie and mother of Samanthawhile illuminating the lives of three generations of women, each more independent than the last.

Their stories open in 1930s India, where Elsie lives with her authoritarian missionary husband and their children. Returning to the American Midwest as a teenager, Kathryn feels alienated and restless. When she loses her mother prematurely to a stroke, she escapes to Oregon for a fresh start. Disappointed that her education was cut short by her father, and dreaming of becoming a writer, she supports herself as a waitress in wartime America, dating soldiers, then meeting and marrying Finnish-American Carl. A construction worker sixteen years her senior, he is an unlikely match, though appealing in his care-free ways and stark difference from her Mennonite past. But Kathryn ends up feeling trapped in the marriage, her ambitions thwarted. Samantha, whos grown up in the atmosphere of her mothers discontent, follows her own career to teach at a university in faraway Boston, where she maintains a happy family of her own.

When Kathryn starts to fail, Samantha moves her mother near her to care for, and then to watch over her deathbed, where something in the roomthe spell, the cord knitting them togetheris cut. Or no, that cant be right, either.Ultraviolet is a lyrical novel of great emotional depth. Suzanne Matson recognizes both the drama that is within every existence and the strengths and fragilities of our relationships with others. She shines a brilliant light on the complexities of marriage, motherhood, aging, and the end of life.
