A shapeshifter, a stepdaughter, and a prince look for reasons to live in this stunning fable from the New York Times–bestselling author of October Light.
In this wonderful fantasy, John Gardner weaves tales within tales to bring a magical world to vivid life. When three travelers on their way to the Suicide Mountains meet an enigmatic man, the Abbot of the Ancient Monastery, they begin a series of wild adventures in which they must confront mystical creatures—and come to terms with the roles fate has determined for each of them.

Superbly imagined and brimming with philosophical insight, In the Suicide Mountains is a tribute to Gardner's passion for medieval storytelling, and an unforgettable novel in its own right.

This ebook features a new illustrated biography of John Gardner, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Gardner family and the University of Rochester Archives.
