In conversation with author Kathleen Kent
In Kristin Hannah’s #1 New York Times instant bestseller The Great Alone, a desperate family seeks a new beginning in the near-isolated wilderness of Alaska, only to find that their unpredictable environment is less threatening than the erratic behavior found in human nature. In this unforgettable portrait of human frailty and resilience, Hannah reveals the indomitable character of the modern American pioneer and the spirit of a vanishing Alaska—a place of incomparable beauty and danger. The Great Alone is a daring, beautiful, stay-up-all-night novel about love and loss, the fight for survival, and the wildness that lives in both man and nature.
Kristin Hannah is the award-winning and bestselling author of more than 20 novels, including the international blockbuster The Nightingale, which has been published in 43 languages and in 2015 was voted a best book of the year by Amazon, Buzzfeed, Library Journal, the Wall Street Journal, and numerous other sources. The Nightingale is currently in movie production at TriStar Pictures, which also optioned her novel The Great Alone.
