Anthony Doerr is the author of All the Light We Cannot See, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence, the Alex Award, and a Finalist for the National Book Award. The New York Times Book Review has said that Doerr “writes about the big questions, the imponderables, the major metaphysical dreads, and he does it fearlessly.” His 2021 release, Cloud Cuckoo Land, spent nineteen weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and was a finalist for the National Book Award. His other works include the story collections Memory Wall and The Shell Collector; the novel About Grace; and the memoir Four Seasons in Rome. He has won five O. Henry Prizes, the Rome Prize, the New York Public Library’s Young Lions Award, the National Magazine Award for fiction, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Story Prize. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Doerr lives in Boise, Idaho, with his wife and two sons.
