The Overstory

Audiobook

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Overstory by Richard Powers, read by Suzanne Toren.

· · · SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018 · · ·

'Autumn makes me think of leaves, which makes me think of trees, which makes me think of The Overstory, the best novel ever written about trees, and really, just one of the best novels, period.' Ann Patchett

'It's a masterpiece.' - Tim Winton

'It's not possible for Powers to write an uninteresting book.' - Margaret Atwood

A monumental novel about trees and people by one of our most 'prodigiously talented' (The New York Times Book Review) novelists.

The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond:

An Air Force loadmaster in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan.
An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut.
A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies and is sent back into life by creatures of air and light.
A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another.

These four, and five other strangers – each summoned in different ways by trees – are brought together in a last and violent stand to save the continent's few remaining acres of virgin forest.

There is a world alongside ours – vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.
