Synopsis

VINTAGE EARTH is a collection of novels to transform our relationship with the natural world.



'This is not our world with trees in it. It's a world of trees, where humans have just arrived'



This is the story of a group of strangers, each summoned in different ways by the natural world, brought together to save it from catastrophe.



An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut. A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies, and is sent back into life by creatures of air and light. A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another. An Air Force crewmember in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan.



'It changed how I thought about the Earth and our place in it' Barack Obama



THE MILLION-COPY GLOBAL BESTSELLER and WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION
