The mesmerizing new novel from the prize-winning author of The Good Thief. This father-daughter epic weaves back and forth through time and across America, from Alaska to the Adirondacks. Both a coming-of-age novel and a literary thriller, The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley is an unforgettable story that explores what it means to be a hero and the cost we pay to protect the people we love most.
“The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley is one part Quentin Tarantino, one part Scheherazade, and twelve parts wild innovation. Hannah Tinti proves herself to be an old fashioned storyteller of the highest order." —Ann Patchett
