Idaho

2018 Everybody Reads Selection

Beautifully written prose combined with a stunning page-turner. Told from multiple perspectives, Idaho intertwines an evocative story of one family with a beautiful homage to the physical landscape, resulting in a psychologically astute book that is a haunting observance of compassion and the triumphs of love.

“HAUNTING, PROPULSIVE AND GORGEOUSLY WRITTEN, THIS IS A DEBUT NOT TO BE MISSED.”
