April’s title is The Overstory by Richard Powers, which won the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
A description by the publisher follows:
From the publisher’s website:
“The best novel ever written about trees, and really just one of the best novels, period.” —Ann Patchett
National Book Award winner Richard Powers’ 12th novel is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world.
From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late 20th-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.
