Picador, 2009 - Coasts - 307 pages
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize Picador is producing a beautiful new hardback edition of a book that is viewed by many as the most extraordinarily written book of the last ten years, and whose author is consistently touted to win the Nobel Prize. Publication will follow the release of what will be a hugely acclaimed film starring Viggo Mortensen (Lord of the Rings) and Academy Award winner Charlize Theron. A father and his son walk alone through burned America, heading through the ravaged landscape to the coast. This is the profoundly moving story of their journey.
