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
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.
