THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

A wondrous, exhilarating novel about nine strangers brought together by an unfolding natural catastrophe

'Really, just one of the best novels, period' Ann Patchett
'The best book I've read in ten years' Emma Thompson
'Dazzlingly written' Robert Macfarlane
'Breathtaking' Barbara Kingsolver

An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut. A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies, and is sent back into life by creatures of air and light. A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another. An Air Force crewmember in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan.

This is the story of these and five other strangers, each summoned in different ways by the natural world, who are brought together in a last stand to save it from catastrophe.

'It's not possible for Powers to write an uninteresting book'
Margaret Atwood

'The best... Should be mandatory reading the world over'
Emilia Clarke

'It's a masterpiece'
