Praise for Peaces

Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2021 by The Boston Globe, Marie Claire, Medium, The Millions, Lithub, and O, The Oprah Magazine

"Vivid, magic-infused." --The New York Times

Enhanting. . .the most surprising, confounding, and oddly insightful couple's trip in recent literary history.--Entertainment Weekly

"Welcome to an alluringly off-kilter cosmos in which trapdoors spring open and revelations emerge as stealthily as killers in an Agatha Christie novel."

"[P]ractically mind altering...Oyeyemi trains her irresistible prose and considerable powers of perception on the uncanny valley that forms between one person's experience and another's interpretation, divergences that cast eerie shadows on the course of relationships past, present and future. A superbly fun Rorschach test of staggering creativity."--Shelf Awareness

"Oyeyemi once again pushes the boundaries of the novel...A surrealist tale of love, heartbreak, and being haunted by the past."--Kirkus

"Curious characters, strange events, and mysteries abound in Oyeyemi's delightfully bonkers latest...this exciting and inventive novel brims with unusual insights." --Publishers Weekly

"Oyeyemi has once again crafted a layered modern-day fairy tale replete with interlinked stories and unexpected connections among its vibrant characters." --Booklist

"Welcome back to the magical, maddening milieu of Oyeyemi's singular fiction, in which trapdoors spring open and revelations emerge like Russian nesting dolls." --O, The Oprah Magazine

"A surreal, inspired journey." --The Millions

"Damn. Helen Oyeyemi must be the fastest literary novelist in the business. Which doesn't bother me one little bit, because I'm always ready to read more from her."--Literary Hub
