Left Bank Books welcomes bestselling author Karl Marlantes, who will sign and discuss his new novel, Deep River!
"Deep River is an engrossing and commanding historical epic about one immigrant family’s shifting fortunes. And though its story is a century old, this time it speaks more directly to America’s current predicament." —The Washington Post
From the New York Times-bestselling author of Matterhorn and What It Is Like to Go to War Karl Marlantes, Deep River is a rich family saga about Finnish immigrants who settle and tame the Pacific Northwest, set against the early labor movements, World War I, and the upheaval of early twentieth-century America. Layered with fascinating historical detail, this is a novel that breathes deeply of the sun-dappled forest and bears witness to the stump-ridden fields the loggers, and the first waves of modernity, leave behind. At its heart, Deep River is an ambitious and timely exploration of the place of the individual, and of the immigrant, in an America still in the process of defining its own identity.
"One of the most profound and devastating novels ever to come out of Vietnam—or any war.” —New York Times Book Review, on Matterhorn
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of Deep River from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
