Cloud Cuckoo Land

by Anthony Doerr | 28 September 2021
Paperback
PRE-ORDER NOW From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of All the Light We Cannot See comes a triumph of imagination and compassion, a soaring story of resilience, hope - and a book. Bound together by a single ancient text, the unforgettable characters of Cloud Cuckoo Land are dreamers and outsiders figuring out the world around them: thirteen-year-old Anna and Omeir, an orphaned seamstress and a cursed boy, on opposite sides of the formidable city walls during the 1453 siege of Constantinople; teenage idealist Seymour and octogenarian Zeno in an attack on a public library in present-day Idaho; and Konstance, decades from now, who turns to the oldest stories to guide her community in peril. Doerr has created a tapestry of times and places that reflects our own vast interconnectedness - with other species, with each other, with those who lived before us and those who will be here after we're gone. Dedicated to 'the librarians then, now, and in the years to come', Cloud Cuckoo Land is a beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship - of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.

Sinéad and Rick's Winter Must Reads - Cloud Cuckoo Land

Sinéad and Rick's Winter Must Reads - Cloud Cuckoo Land

You know the way when you wait for 7 years for a new novel from the writer of a book that genuinely left you in pieces, it's bound to be a disappointment? This is not that book.

Beautiful, complex, gorgeously written, rewarding- and with so much to think about after you finish.
