Ann Patchett talks about her novel The State of Wonder. The story is set deep in the Amazon jungle, and it is a narrative replete with poison arrows and devouring snakes. State of Wonder is a world unto itself, where unlikely beauty stands beside unimaginable loss. It is a tale that leads the reader into the very heart of darkness, and then shows us what lies on the other side. Patchett is the author of several acclaimed books, including Bel Canto and The Patron Saint of Liars.

Book Passage hosts literary luncheons with celebrated authors at our Marin store. These events are catered by the outstanding Insalata’s Restaurant of San Anselmo.
