Barbara Kingsolver & Richard Powers
Barbara Kingsolver's new novel, Unsheltered, is the story of two families in two centuries navigating the challenges of surviving a world in the throes of major cultural shifts. Richard Powers's The Overstory is a novel of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. "It is monumental," wrote Kingsolver. "A gigantic fable of genuine truths held together by a connective tissue of tender exchange. Using the tools of story, Powers pulls readers heart-first into a perspective so much longer-lived and more subtly developed than the human purview that we gain glimpses of a vast, primordial sensibility."
