Reviews

[A] novel so eerie, so chilling and provocative, that you might find yourself rethinking everything you thought you knew about language, belief, and where our human race might be going.--Caroline Leavitt
Operating, as always, on multiple levels with artistic panache, emotional precision, and profound intent, Millet transforms a violent family conflict into a war of cosmic proportions over nothing less than life itself.--Donna Seaman (04/26/2016)
A rare pleasure to read... Millet's fine prose [is] as rich with fresh imagery as it is open-minded to life's hidden possibilities.--Matthew Gilbert (05/03/2016)
Millet's sense of pacing is acute and her prose is glittering and exact.
Millet evinces a rare capacity to surprise and fascinate readers... Unpredictable in the best sense, Millet's eye-opening stories and conceptions are irresistibly interesting. This may be her most beguiling and accessible creation yet.--David Wright
[A]n extraordinary metaphysical thriller from one of America's most inventive novelists.--Laura Miller"Where Is the Voice Coming From?" (05/05/2016)
[A] hypnotic novel of psychological and philosophical suspense.-- (05/02/2016)
[A]ddictive, unsettling... sneaks in some high-minded themes (the nature of reality, the fragility of human connection) without distracting one iota from the suspense. A winner.-- (05/03/2016)
[P]repare to be surprised by more than plot twists. . . . the Pulitzer finalist's philosophical fireworks add layers of energy and mystery.-- (05/03/2016)
A peculiar, stirring thriller. . . . Millet has a knack for planting plainspoken, world-weary narrators in otherworldly circumstances, and Anna is one of her sharpest, most intriguingly philosophical creations.-- (04/26/2016)
Millet weaves a satisfying cat and mouse game... Her novel reads like top-notch psychological suspense...This is a page-turner from a very talented writer, and the result is a crowd-pleaser.-- (04/26/2016)
