Three Farmers on Their Way to a Dance
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Overstory
Rosenthal Award from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters
Special Citation, PEN Hemingway Award
In the spring of 1914 , renowned photographer August Sander took a photograph of three young men on their way to a country dance. This haunting image, capturing the last moments of innocence on the brink of World War I, provides the central focus of Powers' brilliant and compelling first novel. As the fate of the three farmers is chronicled, two contemporary stories unfold. The young narrator becomes obsessed with the photo, while Peter Mays, a computer writer in Boston, discovers he has a personal link with it. The three stories connect in a stunning way and provide a mystery that spans a century of brutality and progress.
