Ann Patchett is the author of several novels, works of nonfiction, and children's books. She has been the recipient of numerous awards including the National Humanities Medal, PEN/Faulkner, the Women's Prize in the U.K., and the Book Sense Book of the Year. Her novel The Dutch House was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Her work has been translated into more than thirty languages. TIME magazine named her one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where she is the owner of Parnassus Books.
With Chekhovian wisdom and her customary genius for enveloping storytelling, Patchett follows up her bestselling The Dutch House with a different take on family, love, and growing up.
Tom Lake probes many aspects of love—from the turbulence of youthful passion to the contentment of marriage to the welcome embrace of family when the outside world falls apart.

"Patchett is at the top of her game." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Poignant and reflective, cementing Patchett’s stature as one of our finest novelists.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
