Michael Cunningham: "The Snow Queen"
Flickr user Several Seconds.
A man walks through Central Park at night, thinking only of his latest failed love affair. He glances at the sky and sees a translucent, aqua light. The strangest thing is the light seems to be looking back at him, seems to see him. This vision begins Michael Cunningham’s new novel, “The Snow Queen.” It’s the story of two brothers facing mid-life who yearn to find some sense of purpose and belonging. One brother turns to religion, the other to drugs. Best known for his Pulitzer prize-winning work, “The Hours,” Cunningham once again creates a cast of characters with heart, humor and psychological complexity. Michael Cunningham on his sixth and latest work of fiction.
Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist. His previous books include "The Hours" and "A Home at the End of the World."
