Pristine slipcased first edition of this gripping Pulitzer prize-winning novel of two children growing up on either side of a world war.
Fine in fine jacket.
"Do you shut your eyes to sleep? How do you know what time it is?"
Beautiful collector's copy of Doerr's novel, the winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and Carnegie Medal for 2015. A best-selling and glowingly reviewed success, ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE follows a blind and heroic French girl and a thoroughly propagandized German boy through the Second World War until their inevitable meeting, while evading charges of sentimentality from all but the strictest critics. The book's frenzied reception came as some surprise to its author, who said of its potential for mainstream popularity, "It never crossed my mind."
