SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018, a wondrous, exhilarating novel about nine strangers brought together by an unfolding natural catastrophe `The best novel ever written about trees, and really, just one of the best novels, period' Ann Patchett An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut.
