“Nathan Englander's latest is, as usual, superb: a work of psychological precision and moral force, with an immediacy that captures both timeless human truth as well as the perplexities of the present day.”
—Colson Whitehead 
 
“Equal parts political thriller and tender lamentation, the latest from Englander explores, in swirling, nonlinear fashion, Israeli-Palestinian tensions and moral conflicts… Ultimately, Englander suggests that shared humanity and fleeting moments of kindness between jailer and prisoner, spy and counterspy, hold the potential for hope, even peace.”
—Booklist
 
“Appealing... Clever, fragmented, pithy... Englander is a wise observer with an empathetic heart.”
—Publishers Weekly
 
“In Englander’s hands, storytelling is a transformative act. Put him alongside Singer, Carver, and Munro. Englander is, quite simply, one of the very best we have.”
—Colum McCann
 
“Englander tells the tangled truth of life in prose that, as ever, surprises the reader with its gnarled beauty.”
—Michael Chabon

"Nathan Englander's fiction [is] always animated by a deep, vibrant core of historical resonance."
—Jennifer Egan
 
“The depth of Englander’s feeling is the thing that separates him from just about everyone. You can hear his heart thumping feverishly on every page.”
—Dave Eggers
 
“Nathan Englander is one of those rare writers who, like Faulkner, manages to make his seemingly obsessive, insular concerns all the more universal for their specificity.”
—Richard Russo
