Peter Ho Davies: The Fortunes says
One of the finer fiction writers presently at work, Peter Ho Davies makes this welcome Elliott Bay return. The author of The Ugliest House in the World, Equal Love, and the Booker Prize longlisted The Welsh Girl, he is here tonight with The Fortunes (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), a novel alreay drawing international praise.

“The Fortunes is wonderfully lucid and sharply imagined. From the very first page, the people in this novel rise from history and we root for them, empathizing with them, as they make their way in the early American West and beyond. It was so easy to be lost in the story, to walk with them for a while, loving and longing and grieving with them. Readers will be richer for it.”
—Jesmyn Ward

“A poignant, cascading four-part novel about being Asian and western, about immigrants and natives, about belonging in a country and one’s skin. It’s outstanding.”
—David Mitchell
