Leland de la Durantaye: Hannah Versus the Tree

Hosted by

Mythical and lyrical, written in love, Leland de la Durantaye’s debut novel Hannah Versus the Tree is original work that speaks to our moment. It is a vengeance story with a great heroine: using everything she has, Hannah fights the power structure in a matriarchal family. Sentence-by-sentence beautiful, it is a surprising novel that you understand as you go along.
