allthelightwecannotseeANTHONY DOERR’s New York Times bestselling novel All the Light We Cannot See won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize, was a finalist for the National Book Award, and was named a best book of 2014 by NPR, The Washington Post, and San Francisco Chronicle. The Washington Independent Review of Books writes, “To open a book by Anthony Doerr is to open a door on humanity…. His sentences shimmer…. His paragraphs are luminous with bright, sparkling beauty.”  The Los Angeles Times hails it as “a beautiful, expansive tale… ambitious and majestic,” The Portland Oregonian describes it as “nothing short of brilliant,” and Booklist, in a starred review, writes that “Doerr’s magnificently drawn story… masterfully and knowledgeably re-creates the deprived civilian conditions of war-torn France.” Doerr is also the author of the acclaimed story collections The Shell Collector and Memory Wall, the memoir Four Seasons in Rome, and the novel About Grace. His work has been widely anthologized, and he is the recipient of many other awards, including the Rome Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, The Story Prize, and four Pushcart Prizes. Doerr was also named one of Granta’s “21 Best Young American Novelists.”
