Richard Powers
Bewilderment: A Novel

The characters created by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Richard Powers share a certain discomfort with the world. They shift between the impulse to connect and the urge to withdraw — into a novel, a piece of music, a movie house, a museum, even cyberspace.

On the heels of his previous bestseller, The Overstory, Powers’ latest novel, Bewilderment, is a deeply felt study into attachment, loss, and hope: of a grieving father, an extraordinary yet troubled son, and an imperiled planet, each of which is inextricably linked with the others.

Bewilderment is a Pulitzer Prize-Winner and a #1 New York Times bestseller and Notable Book of 2021. It was Shortlisted for the 2021 Booker Prize and Longlisted for the 2021 National Book Award for Fiction, and named a Best Book/ Best Novel of 2021 by NPR, Newsweek, The Boston Globe, Audible, Goodreads, and many more. Bewilderment  is also an Oprah’s Book Club Selection.

Richard Powers is the author of thirteen novels, including The Overstory and Orfeo, and the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, the Pulitzer Prize, and the National Book Award. He lives in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains.
