Best Living Idaho Writer

Anthony Doerr

by

Set in the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, France, Anthony Doerr's latest novel, All the Light We Cannot See, is the story of a German orphan named Verner and a blind French lass, Marie-Laure, as their lives intertwine against the backdrop of World War II. Twelve years ago, Doerr, who hails from the Gem State, published the acclaimed short story collection, The Shell Collector, and has been cutting a fine figure as Idaho's most celebrated living writer ever since. anthonydoerr.com
