Richard Powers is the author of thirteen novels, including the 2019 novel The Overstory, which won the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. The book is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of the natural world. His new novel, Bewilderment, brings Powers’ astute and compassionate eye for nature to the cosmos. His most intimate book yet, it is the account of a father and son’s ferocious love, and contains soaring descriptions of the natural world and its tantalizing vision of life beyond. Powers is a MacArthur Fellow and received the National Book Award.
