EARTHLY POWERS was recently named a “book of a lifetime” by the leading UK newspaper, The Independent. The novel’s power is illustrated by the writer’s tale of a love story that started with the exchange of this book.
“About 15 years ago I gave a copy of this novel to a friend who was setting off on holiday, with an inscription saying that it was my favorite novel. A few days later, the phone rang. It was her, breathless with excitement. She’d just finished the book. We gabbled away, agreeing about all the ways in which we loved the book. A decade and a half later, both of us remember this call with strange clarity. She’s now my wife.”
