WALDEN POND BOOKS
WANTS YOU TO KNOW ABOUT:

JUST ANNOUNCED!
The winner of the
2014 Man Booker Prize:
THE NARROW ROAD TO THE DEEP NORTH
"Beware Richard Flanagan’s new novel. His story will draw you away from friends and family into dark contemplation the way only the most extraordinary books can. Nothing since Cormac McCarthy’s The Road has shaken me like this - all the more so because it’s based on recorded history, rather than apocalyptic speculation. Unbearably powerful. This is a classic work of war fiction from a world-class writer." — The Washington Post."

The winner of the
2013 Man Booker Prize:
THE LUMINARIES

FINALLY IN PAPERBACK!
"Sometimes - rarely - a novel arrives that is so good all you can do is shake your head in wonder. Brilliant in design, masterful in execution, and intensely pleasurable to inhabit, The Luminaries is a masterpiece, the work of a writer of apparently limitless range and talent."

2013/2014 AWARD-WINNING BOOKS:
The Pulitzer, The National Book Award, The Man-Booker Prize, The Hugo, The Edgar, etc...
