Immersion by Mary Mackey

Isolated in a remote field station in a tropical rainforest in the late 1960's, a young woman named Kirsten wages a desperate struggle for intellectual, spiritual, personal, and sexual liberation from her biologist husband who views her as a piece of property and the creatures of the rainforest as specimens to be killed and catalogued. The result of this tangle of adultery and relentless tropical heat leads to murder, but of an unexpected victim. First published in 1972 by Alta Gerry's legendary Shameless Hussy Press, Immersion was a ground-breaking novel written in a style simultaneously cinematic, poetic, and hallucinatory.

"A must read . . . Mackey has written a story with prose that flows like poetry. Beautiful even in tragedy."

-Coral Russell, Alchemy of Scrawl
