Euphoria explores the love lives and careers of three anthropologists. Nell Stone and Schuyler Fenwick are married. Andrew Bankson meets them on their journey and helps them explore one of the tribes that he knew from his travels. The three become very close and develop a famous anthropological tool together that they call “The Grid.” However, the book ends on a poignant note with themes of death, cultural appropriation, separation, and loneliness. Euphoria is loosely based on anthropologist Margaret Mead’s exploration of the tribes of Papua New Guinea and her love triangle with Reo Fortune and Gregory Bateson during this time.
