Anthony Doerr

Readers' Picks

Boise author Anthony Doerr's novel All the Light We Cannot See was a finalist for the National Book Award, won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and the Carnegie Medal, cruised for months on The New York Times Best Sellers List and was one of the books President Barack Obama purchased during Small Business Saturday at Washington, D.C.'s Politics and Prose bookstore. Even better, the prez let it slip that All the Light We Cannot See was on his summer reading list. When the most powerful man on earth is curling up with your book at Martha's Vineyard, it's safe to say you've made it.
