Description
LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER • A stunning debut novel about love and forgiveness, about the violence of memory and the equal violence of its loss—from O. Henry Prize–winning author Emily RuskovichWINNER OF THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST BOOK AWARD
  • WINNER OF THE DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD
  • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BUZZFEED Ann and Wade have carved out a life for themselves from a rugged landscape in northern Idaho, where they are bound together by more than love. With her husband's memory fading, Ann attempts to piece together the truth of what happened to Wade's first wife, Jenny, and to their daughters. In a story written in exquisite prose and told from multiple perspectives—including Ann, Wade, and Jenny, now in prison—we gradually learn of the mysterious and shocking act that fractured Wade and Jenny's lives, of the love and compassion that brought Ann and Wade together, and of the memories that reverberate through the lives of every character in Idaho.In a wild emotional and physical landscape, Wade's past becomes the center of Ann's imagination, as Ann becomes determined to understand the family she never knew—and to take responsibility for them, reassembling their lives, and her own.FINALIST FOR: International Dylan Thomas Prize

  • Young Lions Fiction Award "You know you're in masterly hands here. [Emily] Ruskovich's language is itself a consolation, as she subtly posits the troubling thought that only decency can save us. . . . Ruskovich's novel will remind many readers of the great Idaho novel, Marilynne Robinson's Housekeeping. . . . [A] wrenching and beautiful book."—The New York Times Book Review (Editors' Choice)"Sensuous, exquisitely crafted."—The Wall Street Journal"The first thing you should know about Idaho, the shatteringly original debut by O. Henry Prize winner Emily Ruskovich, is that it upturns everything you think you know about story. . . . You could read Idaho just for the sheer beauty of the prose, the expert way Ruskovich makes everything strange and yet absolutely familiar."—San Francisco Chronicle"Mesmerizing . . . [an] eerie story about what the heart is capable of fathoming and what the hand is capable of executing."—Marie Claire"Idaho is a wonderful debut. Ruskovich knows how to build a page-turner from the opening paragraph."—Ft. Worth Star-Telegram
