This new novel from Pulitzer Prize finalist Daniel Mason brims with love and madness, humor, and hope. Centered around a house in New England and the land around it, North
Woods follows the cycles of history, nature, and even language. It shows the myriad, magical ways in which we’re connected to our environment, to history, and to one another. It is not just an unforgettable novel about secrets and destinies, but a way of looking at the world that asks the timeless question: How do we live on, even after we’re gone?
