Reviews

"Great Circle is a masterpiece...one of the best books I've ever read"
--J. Courtney Sullivan

A breathtaking epic... This is a stunning feat.
--Publishers Weekly [starred review]

The destinies of every one of these people, and many more unforgettable characters, intersect in ways that reverberate through a hundred years of story. Whether Shipstead is creating scenes in the Prohibition-era American West, in wartime London, or on a Hollywood movie set, her research is as invisible as it should be, allowing a fully immersive experience. Ingeniously structured and so damn entertaining; this novel is as ambitious as its heroines--but it never falls from the sky.
--Kirkus Reviews [starred review]
