Composed with a “luxuriant ability to imagine his characters’ lives in the round” and a “romantic sense of the adventure of the inner life” (The New York Review of Books), Michael Cunningham’s books are narrative experiments—genre bending tours through time—often in conversation with existing literature. His books include The Hours, a novel which won the 1999 Pulitzer Prize and PEN/Faulkner Award and was adapted into an Academy Award-winning film starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Julianne Moore; A Home at the End of the World, made into a film starring Colin Farrell and Sissy Spacek; Golden Days; Flesh and Blood; Specimen Days; and By Nightfall. In his new novel The Snow Queen, he tackles the three great American subjects: religion, drugs, and politics.
