Adrienne Martini reviews Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr

Cloud Cuckoo Land , Anthony Doerr (Scribner 978-1-9821-6843-8, $30, 640pp, hc) Sept. 2021. Anthony Doerr’s Cloud Cuckoo Land is hard to sum up for all of the best reasons. His voice is clear, strong, and gorgeous. The story tells the truth about books and being a human by looking at both slantwise – and it sticks with you long after you’ve finished it. Yet, despite the author’s Pulitzer-winning pedigree, Cloud Cuckoo Land is not pretentious, nor does Doerr show off his writing ability for its own sake. This is a solid, well-told tale that doesn’t get lost in its own cleverness. It is also very much a genre work in the Vonnegut-ian mode, where the genre’s furniture provides a nice seat from which to look at life on Earth.
