Fiction: “Cloud Cuckoo Land” by Anthony Doerr
Dedicated to “the librarians then, now, and in the years to come,” Anthony Doerr’s “Cloud Cuckoo Land” is about the power of story and the astonishing survival of the physical book when for thousands of years they were so rare and so feared, dying, as one character says, “in fires or floods or in the mouths of worms or at the whims of tyrants.” It is a hauntingly beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship — of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.— Provided by publisher.
