The Snow Queen hardcover
“writes some of the most beautiful prose in contemporary American fiction, and his gorgeous way with words is on full display in his new novel, The Snow Queen,” according to The Daily Beast. Michiko Kakutani in The New York Times notes, “Cunningham’s resonant new novel . . . is arguably [his] most original and emotionally piercing book to date… [giving] us an intimate sense of his characters’ daily lives, while situating their hopes and dreams within the context of two moments in history already slipping by.” His fourth novel The Hours, winner of both the 1999 Pulitzer Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, turned him into a literary star. Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway, The Hours became a New York Times bestseller; was included in The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Publishers Weekly best-books-of-the-year lists; and was made into an award-winning feature film. His other works include the novels A Home at the End of the World, Flesh and Blood, Specimen Days, and By Nightfall, and the non-fiction book, Land’s End: A Walk in Provincetown.
