Summary

Naomi and Scanlon Pratt are at the threshold of a new life. East Coast transplants in small town Oregon, Scanlon will be a professor at the university-teaching mass movements and domestic radicalism-and Naomi, a professional #x1C;nose#x1D; who lost her sense of smell, is pregnant with their first child. For Scanlon, all of this is ideal. With ample opportunity for field research, he finds a subject in Clay, a young anarchist who despises him but adores Naomi. And he also becomes involved with a local secessionist movement-and its sensuous, free-spirited leader. Naomi, though far less enchanted, discovers that Oregon offers a multitude of scents. Her nose has returned-but she isn#x19;t pleased with everything she smells. As they welcome their newborn, their lives become increasingly intertwined with Clay#x19;s, and they soon must decide exactly where their loyalties lie-before the world Scanlon has been dabbling in engulfs them all. A contemporary civil war between desire and betrayal, rich in crisp, luxuriant detail, The Oregon Experimentexplores a minefield of convictions and complications at once political, social, and intimately personal.
