Notes From Your Bookseller

If you haven’t yet read Noah Hawley’s 2017 Edgar Award-winning novel, Before the Fall, now’s your chance! (And, at “the right price,” for a limited time.) Longtime fans of Fargo know Hawley to be a creative genius. Here, and in all his novels, he shows that tv series creativity isn’t the only place he works. Great news, once you complete Before the Fall, you’ll be right in time to pick up his January 2022 new release, Anthem.


On a foggy summer night, eleven people--ten privileged, one down-on-his-luck painter--depart Martha's Vineyard on a private jet headed for New York. Sixteen minutes later, the unthinkable happens: the plane plunges into the ocean. The only survivors are the painter Scott Burroughs and a four-year-old boy, who is now the last remaining member of an immensely wealthy and powerful media mogul's family.

Was it by chance that so many influential people perished? Or was something more sinister at work? A storm of media attention brings Scott fame that quickly morphs into notoriety and accusations, and he scrambles to salvage truth from the wreckage. Amid trauma and chaos, the fragile relationship between Scott and the young boy grows and glows at the heart of this stunning novel, raising questions of fate, morality, and the inextricable ties that bind us together.

Kristin Hannah raves, "Noah Hawley really knows how to keep a reader turning the pages... a complex, compulsively readable thrill ride of a novel."

Winner of the 2017 Edgar Award for Best Novel and the 2017 International Thriller Writers Award For Best Novel

From the Award-Winning Creator of Fargo Comes "One of the Year's Best Suspense Novels" (New York Times).

What People are Saying About This

Michael Cunningham

BEFORE THE FALL is a ravishing and riveting beauty of a thriller. It's also a deep exploration of desire, betrayal, creation, family, fate, mortality, and rebirth. It's one part Dennis Lehane, one part Dostoevsky. I was spellbound from first page to last; I haven't fully recovered yet. --MICHAEL CUNNINGHAM, PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE HOURS
