The Overstory
Author: Richard Powers Category: Fiction Publisher: Vintage Published: 2019 ISBN: 9781784708245 Loan
Description:

This is a novel that will fundamentally alter the way you look at trees – a few weeks after reading it, I found myself moved to tears in Box Woods. It is an ambitious, brilliant novel, that has particular resonance as the HS2 rail storyline unfolds in reality. Trees inhabit every part of this story, and bring together a diverse cast of characters in one last stand against catastrophe. Highly recommended.
