Snow Country is the spectacular, sweeping new novel from the internationally acclaimed author of Birdsong and Human Traces.

Looking back to the Vienna of Klimt and Freud and forward to the shadow that is starting to fall over Europe, Sebastian Faulks's new novel is an intensely personal story that focuses on Lena, a spirited girl born with nothing, and Anton, a man of passion and self-doubt.

Lena was born with nothing but her own strength of character to an alcoholic mother in a small town in southern Austria in 1906. Anton is the restless son of a bourgeois family who sets out to make his fortune in pre-First World War Vienna. Their lives become fatally entwined at the Schloss Seeblick in 1933, with Europe precariously placed between two wars.
Snow Country is a landmark novel of exquisite yearnings, dreams of youth, and the sanctity of hope. In elegeant, shimmering prose, Sebastian Faulks has produced a work of timeless resonance.
