Pulitzer Prize-winner Anthony Doerr’s best-selling All the Light We Cannot See was particularly popular in Australia. His new book, Cloud Cuckoo Land, described by The Guardian as a “lungful of fresh air”, crystallises around an imagined novel written by historical author Diogenes for his recuperating niece. A fabulous adventure story, the book becomes the common thread throughout Anthony’s magical novel, with all its subsequent characters connected to this book within a book, whether as champion, custodian or threat. A joyous epic story of survival and love.
