"A monumental achievement . . . it sweeps the reader through hundreds of years and an array of protagonists with a deft, heartbreaking, idiosyncratic zeal. I loved it" - Maggie O'Farrell
Daniel Mason is a doctor and author of The Piano Tuner, A Far Country, The Winter Soldier, and A Registry of My Passage Upon the Earth, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His work has been translated into 28 languages, adapted for opera and the stage, and awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Joyce Carol Oates Prize, the California Book Award, the Northern California Book Award, and a Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts.
For the first time we welcome Daniel to the Edinburgh bookshop to hear all about his latest novel, North Woods.
About North Woods
A single house deep in the woods of New England. Over 400 years, it will be home to a young Puritan couple on the run, an English soldier with a dream, inseparable twin sisters, a lovelorn painter, a lusty beetle, a desperate mother, a haunted son, a ruthless conman, and a stalking panther.
Buried secrets and inevitable fates. Madness, dreams and hope.
Everything, and everyone, are intricately connected. The dark, raucous, beautiful past is very much alive.
Exhilarating, daring and playful, North Woods will change the way you see the world.
