What we’re reading: All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, this is a beautiful, stunningly ambitious novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.
Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Anthony Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work.
