Book Details

Now a major motion picture from Warner Independent starring Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale

In Stewart O'Nan's Snow Angels, Arthur Parkinson is fourteen during the dreary winter of 1974. Enduring the pain of his parents' divorce, his world is shattered when his beloved former babysitter, Annie, falls victim to a tragic series of events. The interlinking stories of Arthur's unraveling family, and of Annie's fate, form the backdrop of this intimate tale about the price of love and belonging, told in a spare, translucent, and unexpectedly tender voice.

Reading Guide

In The News

“A thriller of the heart, at once suspenseful and emotionally absorbing.” —Newsday (New York)

“Beautiful and harrowing...An exquisite double helix, each of its two strands the tale of an unraveling family, curving in tenuous but essential relation to the other.” —Elle

“Stunning...A truthful and deeply sad picture of the American hinterland, which has lost religion and maybe also lost its capacity for sustained love....Wonderfully effective...O'Nan sees with a vengeance.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Haunting...a whole that's much more than the sum of its parts...Moving, beautifully constructed, morally complex.” —The Washington Post Book World

“Shines with a cold, stark light...Strangely beautiful.” —Los Angeles Times
