SVWC READS: Anthony Doerr

By:

Author of the much-loved novel, All the Light We Cannot See, ANTHONY DOERR recommends Brian Greene’s Until the End of Time: Mind, Matter and Our Search for Meaning in an Evolving Universe as the perfect read for our complicated, uncertain days. “Greene’s new book covers the entire history of the universe, from the big bang until (yep) the end of time as we understand it. The prose can get wonderfully dense in places, but Greene is a wonderful teacher, and not only does he help remind us how small—in terms of the universe—our current moment is, he simultaneously reminds us how fortunate we are to be alive and conscious at all. To have the chance to sing, dance, love, try, and fail before something else comes along and takes our place? That’s the most extraordinary gift we’ll ever receive.”

Anthony also suggests Anne Carson’s Autobiography of Red. An amazing poet, Carson has written a hybrid—a work that is both a novel and a poem—a stunning work that is “a crazy, amazing, dazzling, weird book—electrifying and super-strange.”
