"This book will pull you in, take hold, and not let go until you reach the final page--perhaps far longer than that. Without a doubt, my favorite read of this year."

-- "Christina Dalcher, author of Vox"

"What a compelling, terrible beauty this novel is. My heart was breaking even as my skin was crawling."--

-- "Lisa McInerney, author of The Glorious Heresies"

"Provocative, muscular, and entirely unforgiving, this terrifying novel is a timely reminder that words have the power to strip us of our humanity. I gulped it down with my heart racing."

-- "Sue Rainsford, author of Follow Me to Ground"

"With an artfulness perfectly calibrated with irony, [Bazterricca] presents an astounding portrait of a humanity ready to do anything to satisfy itself, even at its own expense."

-- "Le Monde"

"A dystopic fable as chilling as it is compelling."

-- "Paris Match"
