Nicole Krauss, National Book Award finalist and the New York Times bestselling author of Great House and The History of Love, masterfully weaves two stories of personal transformation into a complex narrative. Delving fearlessly into issues of identity, purpose, the rejection of convention, and the possibility of looking beyond ourselves toward the infinite, Krauss has produced her most ambitious novel to date – and her first in seven years. With its innovative use of concurrent stories about two characters in crisis, who, on the surface, share only the convergence of place – the Israeli desert -- Forest Dark is a profound exploration of how we control our own narrative and how that narrative controls us. Bursting with life and humor, Forest Dark is a mesmorizing novel of metamorphisis and self-realization and one you won’t soon forget.
“One of America's most important novelists and an international literary sensation.” (New York Times).
