Today we’re delighted to announce that Anthony Doerr’s novel All the Light We Cannot See has won the 2014 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Historical Fiction.
The Award caps off a year of enormous success for Anthony and the book, which was No. 2 on Amazon’s list of the Best Books of 2014, a New York Times Notable Book of 2014, and last weekend was purchased by none other than President Barack Obama. Anthony’s spectacular, widescreen story took ten years to write, telling of a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II. We’re incredibly proud to publish Anthony, and would like to congratulate him on this well-deserved recognition.
A boy is trapped beneath the ruins of a city; from far above and across the airwaves, a girl reads aloud to him. Anthony Doerr explores the inspirations behind his new novel, All the Light We Cannot See – published in the UK on 8 May 2014.
