Our November guest will be author David Guterson for his new novel, Ed King.
In Seattle in 1962, Walter Cousins, a mild-mannered actuary--"a guy who weighs risk for a living"--takes a risk of his own, and makes the biggest error of his life. He sleeps with Diane Burroughs, the sexy, not-quite-legal British au pair who's taking care of his children for the summer. Diane gets pregnant and leaves their baby on a doorstep, but not before turning the tables on Walter and setting in motion a tragedy of epic proportions. Their orphaned child, adopted by an adoring family and named Edward Aaron King, grows up to become a billionaire Internet tycoon and an international celebrity--the "King of Search"--who unknowingly, but inexorably, hurtles through life toward a fate he may have no power to shape.
An instant classic--David Guterson's most daring and dazzling novel yet--that brings a contemporary urgency to one of the greatest stories of all time.
David Guterson's Snow Falling on Cedars won the PEN/Faulkner Award and the American Booksellers Association Book of the Year Award, among others. He is a contributing editor at Harper's magazine and lives on an island in Puget Sound.
