Reviews


‘The story of Trump’s America’ Daily Mail

‘Page-turning, gripping, full of unexpected twists’ Observer

‘A magnificent story of two broken families, both steeped in grief’ Independent

‘Icily subtle … at its spine-tingling best when staring into the dark, a sliver away from the Gothic’ Spectator

‘Dramatic, dazzling, ingenious, agile … her uniquely sane, empathetic voice seems particularly vital and timely during Trump’s presidency’ Literary Review

‘The most relevant book of Oates’s half-century-long career . . . a masterpiece’ Washington Post

‘Oates’s American saga captivates because it exists within an actual drama playing out across the country. A graceful and excruciating story of two families who do not live very far apart, but exist in different realities’ USA Today
