Exclusive First Look: Nicole Krauss’s ‘Forest Dark’

By posted at 12:00 pm on March 9, 2017 1

Nicole Krauss is back with her first novel in seven years. Forest Dark “interweaves the stories of two disparate individuals — an older lawyer and a young novelist — whose transcendental search leads them to the same Israeli desert.” The cover of Krauss’s new offering sports cool blue waves (dunes?) and the now-ubiquitous yellow, centering a truly killer blurb from Philip Roth. Krauss was a National Book Award and Orange Prize finalist for Great House, and The History of Love won the Saroyan Prize for International Literature. Forest Dark will be published by HarperCollins on September 12.

    Krauss’ last book (also featuring a novelist; see a pattern here?) garnered one of the greatest “blurbs” ever written, courtesy of the National Book Award people:

    “This is a novel about the long journey of a magnificent desk”

    Golly, if that doesn’t get you excited for literature, I don’t know what will!
