The author of the "evocative, spine-tingling, and razor-sharp" (Bustle) I'm Thinking of Ending Things that inspired the Netflix original movie and the "short, shocking psychological three-hander" (The Guardian) Foe returns with a new work of philosophical suspense.
"I loved this book and couldn't put it down-a deeply gripping, surreal, and wonderfully mysterious novel. Not only has Reid given us a brilliant page-turner, but a profoundly moving meditation on life and art, death and infinity. Reid is a master."
"A taut and frightening read, perhaps best called a thriller. But the true thrill is in how so slender a book tackles such big questions-What does it mean to make art? What happens as we near death?-with such grace."
"Simply hypnotic. This novel works by a fine hat trick of genre-twisting subtlety, chilling suspense, and a bone-close two-fold portrait of aging in a world that devours everything. The book surprises, even betrays, and every second of its rich rewards is earned by Iain Reid's winning, wise restraint. Read it to be caught in this brilliantly inspired vision of art and life. I am glad I did."
"Reid masterfully gets into the psyche of his characters and readers all at once. What a gift."
