Reviews

"[A] haunting fable about morality and self-delusion . . . Lacey--spare and elegant as ever--creates a story that feels at the same time mythological and arrestingly like life. Darkly playful; a warning without a moral." --Kirkus (starred review)

"An ambitious, powerful fable of identity and belief . . . Lacey's talent shines in this masterful work, her best yet." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Lacey's quietly provocative novel is brilliantly composed. She shines a light on the complexity of humans and the dangers of judging and categorizing others based on appearance, as Pew's ambiguity reveals the true nature of her characters." --Booklist

"The mercurial and electric Catherine Lacey has now conjured up an of-the-moment fable of trauma and projection - one part Kaspar Hauser, one part James Purdy, and one part Rachel Cusk. The pages shimmer with implication." --Jonathan Lethem, author of The Feral Detective

"I consumed Pew. It is the electric charge we need." --Daisy Johnson, author of Everything Under
