"A Powerful Meditation on Fathers and Sons"

How do we move forward when the past looms unreasonably large?

Memento Park

In Memento Park, forthcoming from Mark Sarvas MFA ’19, a son learns more about his father than he ever could have imagined when a mysterious piece of art is unexpectedly restored to him.  

Memento Park, Sarvas's second novel, will be published on March 13 by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

Salman Rushdie calls Memento Park “a gripping novel about art that is also a powerful meditation on fathers and sons, and the need to face up to the falsehoods spawned by the horrors of the past." 

A thrilling, ceaselessly intelligent investigation into the crime known as history.
