Anthony Doerr, who received a Pulitzer Prize for All the Light We Cannot See in 2015, traverses space and time with dexterity and panache in his imaginative and otherworldly novel, Cloud Cuckoo Land. The novel centers on the coming-of-age tales of five very different characters, who, though separated by centuries, miles and cultures, find deep connection through a singular book. Cloud Cuckoo Land, a National Book Award finalist, is an exquisite exploration of the power of storytelling.
