Margot Berwin - Scent of Darkness

Colfax Avenue: Margot Berwin, author of the bestselling debut Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire, will read from and sign her new novel Scent of Darkness (Pantheon). In this eagerly anticipated second novel, Berwin takes readers deep into the bayous of Louisiana, to a world of fortune-tellers, soothsayers, and potent elixirs. Scent of Darkness is a magical, seductive story about the power of scent, and about what happens when a perfume renders a young woman irresistible.

“Berwin follows Hothouse Flower and the Nine Plants of Desire with a tale about the mysterious and luscious world of the aromata, professional perfume makers. . . . Berwin’s prose is poetic and measured, and her enchanting novel will leave readers searching for a scent of their own.” —Amber Peckham, Booklist
