Reviews

"IN A PERFECT WORLD reveals astonishing and tender insight into human nature while exposing a terrifying, yet believable, world I'd never before imagined. This story will grasp onto your heart before swiftly carrying you away."--Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties
"[Kasischke]writes with worldly-wise profundity and sudden beauty but also sly humor . . .We're helplessly drawn in by a slew of burning questions, with this one foremost: When can we expect a sequel...or is that nothing but a doomed hope?"--Elle
"Kasischke finds beauty amid the apocalypse in her timely seventh novel . . . Startling, sometimes violent images combine with strikingly dispassionate narration to create a fictional world where terror, beauty and chaos walk hand in hand."--Publishers Weekly
"This is a doomsday book in the form of a finely observed domestic drama, showing how dysfunctional relationships shift and soften in response to the looming menace . . . The reader may well come away with the odd, exhilarating feeling that a spell has both been cast and broken."--Los Angeles Times
"From its haunting opening image to its riveting end, this is a tale of beauty, resilience, love, sacrifice, and even grace found in the most unlikely of places. In a truly 'perfect world' every book I read would inspire me like this one."--Katrina Kittle, author of The Kindness of Strangers
