Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Shell Collector is breathtaking.... Perilously beautiful." --Boston Globe

“Doerr’s prose dazzles, his sinewy sentences blending the naturalists’ unswerving gaze with the poet’s gift for metaphor.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Anthony Doerr is a gifted and fearless new writer. He is absolutely unafraid to take on the biggest themes of the human condition, always writing about heroes and their various epic journeys. The Shell Collector is unforgettable—not so much a book of short stories as a book of short myths.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
