Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Readers of weird, atmospheric fiction with a conspiratorial bent will enjoy Malerman’s latest offering.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Malerman’s follow-up to Bird Box is completely unpredictable and utterly bizarre in all the best ways.” Booklist
“Malerman’s striking originality can’t be denied…Dark, brooding, and slightly unhinged, Malerman’s unusually compelling second novel is certifiably unlike any you’ll read this year.” Kirkus Reviews
