In her debut novel for adults, Kyoko Mori has drawn on ancient myths, reworked with her hallmark lush and lyrical prose, to probe the eternal question: Given the fragility of life, is love too great a risk?
Kyoko Mori is the author of two novels for young readers, One Bird and Shizuko’s Daughter, which was chosen as a Best Young Children’s Book by The New York Times. She has also written two memoirs for adults, Polite Lies and The Dream of Water. Born in Kobe, Japan, Mori moved to the United States as a teenager. She teaches writing at Harvard University.
“A novel by Kyoko Mori is an event. Laced with her beautiful writing, Stone Field, True Arrow is breathtaking.”—Lorrie Moore, author of Birds of America
