Author(s): Richard Powers

General Fiction

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Overstory and Bewilderment, a visionary novel about the failings of the American dream.

'It's not possible for powers to write an uninteresting book' Margaret Atwood

In Lacewood, Illinois, Laura Bodey, a divorced mother of two and real estate agent, plunges into a new existence when she learns that she has cancer.

This same small town is home to Clare & Company, a soap manufacturer begun by three brothers in nineteenth-century Boston. Over the course of more than a century, it transforms into a powerful international corporation.

Clare & Company's stunning growth reflects America's kaleidoscopic history, yet for Laura and her family, this wild success has profound and lasting consequences.

'Penetrating and splendidly written... Dazzling' New York Times
