Anthony Doerr‘s phenomenal bestseller All The Light We Cannot See took out the Dymocks Best Book of the Year award at the Dymocks Conference 2016! This is an outstanding achievement for a book that was originally published over two years ago and reflects the wonderful and sustained passion and enthusiasm everyone at HarperCollins has had for this title. Dymocks have also been fantastic supporters of it right from the beginning and we were delighted to get this recognition from them.
