Reviews

Passionate, playful, and poignant.
Riveting, startling, hilarious, and sad--I've never read anything like it.--Elif Batuman, author of The Idiot
A mature, wry, uniquely female take on the problem of immortality.--Chelsea Leu
An elegant musing on sacredness, history and purpose that is, at the same time, a deliciously romantic, highly suspenseful page-turner.--Geraldine Brooks, author of The Secret Chord
Rachel speaks with the wisdom of the ancients when she observes that immortality offers no consolation for the death of others. 'Not dying doesn't make it better, ' she says of all that sorrow. 'It only makes it take longer.'--Sam Sachs
Horn does not hedge her bets, whipping up a Jewish telenovela of ancient-world drama and present-day complications. It'll put you off immortality for good.--Marion Winik
