"Mercy Street is propulsive, urgent, and essential. Haigh writes with uncommon insight and compassion (and, yes, mercy) about people whose ideals are so strikingly at odds that we can only wait for their lives to collide. I was riveted and transported, and want to hand this book to everyone I know.--Rebecca Makkai, Pulitzer Prize finalist for The Great Believers
Mercy Street is a strong and heartfelt story about contemporary America in all its complexities, an important and necessary book.
--Dorthe Nors, author of Mirror, Shoulder, Signal
"I'm just going to say it: Jennifer Haigh is the greatest novelist of our generation. And Mercy Street is her best novel yet."--Joanna Rakoff, author of My Salinger Year
"Mercy Street is a savvy, keen-eyed, witty, wise, and altogether luminous novel. A triumph. Jennifer Haigh is a young master of this form. Though, at day's end, I'd read her just to read her."
