In the summer of 1916, a series of fatal shark attacks terrorized the New Jersey Shore. Further inland, a polio epidemic plagued Philadelphia, while the cloud of World War I loomed over the nation. As the forces of nature, disease and war close in, characters who struggle to change must face a creature whose evolution has led to millions of years of survival.

Spanning several cities, the infinite depths of the ocean and the point of view of the shark herself, Matawan examines how internal anxieties are often just as terrifying as national catastrophes.
