"Entirely surprising, thoroughly enjoyable . . . Meet Me in Another Life asks what if we could live all our best and worst selves, and what if all those selves have one specific purpose. A truly captivating work with an ending that rocked my socks off."--Erika Swyler, author of Light From Other Stars and The Book of Speculation
"An intriguing thought experiment and a sweet, melancholy heartache of a novel. Santi and Thora's bond, in the many varied forms it took from life to life, was moving and claustrophobic. Given the smaller spheres many of us are currently living within, their mutual reliance felt particularly poignant . . . and asks the reader how much we are shaped by the people we love."--Kate Mascarenhas, author of The Psychology of Time Travel
"Inventive, bold and surprising--from where the novel starts I could have never imagined where it ends. Along the way the story of Thora and Santi builds in suspense and emotion, revealing itself page by page, layer by layer. Cleverly constructed and highly entertaining." --Charles Yu
