From the best-selling author of Longbourn, a remarkable imagining of Samuel Beckett's wartime experiences. In 1939 Paris, the ground rumbles with the footfall of Nazi soldiers marching along the Champs-Élysées, and a young, unknown writer, recently arrived from Ireland to make his mark, smokes one last cigarette with his lover before the city they know is torn apart. Soon he will put them both in mortal danger by joining the Resistance.

Through the years that follow, we are witness to the workings of a uniquely brilliant mind struggling to create a language to express a shattered world. A story of survival and determination, of spies and artists, passion and danger, A Country Road, A Tree is a portrait of the extremes of human experience alchemized into one man's timeless art.

Review:

"Exquisitely crafted." --O, The Oprah Magazine

"Sensitive, well written, with great compassion for [its] characters. . . . [A Country Road, A Tree] demonstrates, in impeccable detail, that even war can become the stuff of daily life." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Enthralling." --Santa Fe New Mexican

"Moving, beautifully written and riveting." --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Extraordinary. . . . It is a daring project, to enter the mind of a man known for his withdrawal and silences, but Baker succeeds triumphantly." --The Guardian
