Peter Geye’s Book Bundle

Peter Geye — 01/09/2019

Welcome to our Book Bundle series! Authors we love choose three of their favorite titles, we bundle them up nicely, and your to-be-read pile flourishes. This round of recommended reading comes from Minneapolis’s own Peter Geye, author of novels Safe from the Sea, The Lighthouse Road, and 2017 Minnesota Book Award winner, Wintering. He has been hard at work on a new novel, which we can’t wait to read in the hopefully-very-near-future. See what Peter has to say about these three books he loves!

Peter Geye's Recommended Reading

Laurentian Divide: A Novel
by Sarah Stonich

University of Minnesota Press | September 2018 | $22.95

Stonich has done for Hatchet Inlet, Minnesota what Richard Russo did for Mohawk, New York or Kent Haruf did for Holt, Colorado. That is, make an imaginary place so real, I feel like I grew up there.

The Wildlands: A Novel
by Abby Geni

Counterpoint | September 2018 | $26.00

This novel is a thrill ride, an environmental treatise, a portrait of a radical young man, and a gripping family saga all in one.

Sing, Unburied, Sing
by Jesmyn Ward

Scribner | May 2018 | $16.00

This generational saga is simply one of the most powerful novels I’ve ever read. Beautiful, profound, harrowing, lyrical all at once. Jesmyn Ward is one of the very best writers of this, or any other moment.
