John Pipkin

In his scintillating debut, John Pipkin fictionalizes an ignoble event in noted naturalist Henry David Thoreau’s life. One year before his historic retreat to the woods around Walden pond, Thoreau struck a match and carelessly started a mammoth fire that would go on to consume 300 acres of forest and farmland. “A superb historical fiction as well as a complex and provocative novel of ideas—Pulitzer Prize material.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
