- PEN/Faulkner Award-winner for Snow Falling on Cedars, novelist, poet, essayist, and short story writer.
- ED KING – is a story of a brief affair which sets in motion a tragedy of epic proportions, upending Sophocles’ immortal tale of fate, free will, and forbidden desire
Finely wrought, flawlessly written.
Profound and ambitious. . . . Guterson depicts . . . moral and spiritual struggle with a clear-eyed intensity and intelligence that gives East of the Mountains its essential authority.
Our Lady of the Forest shows Guterson to be a serious and searching craftsman, very much in the American grain.
With The Other, Guterson has made a highly significant contribution to American literature, touching on a number of persistent themes, including Puritan beginnings, westward expansion and journeys of exploration, ecological collapse, transcendentalism, apocalypticism, social decline, mass-media vacuity and the interplay of wealth with bohemia.
