About the Author

Lyndsay Faye is the author of six critically acclaimed books: Jane Steele, which was nominated for an Edgar for Best Novel; Dust and Shadow; The Gods of Gotham, also Edgar-nominated; Seven for a Secret; The Fatal Flame; and The Paragon Hotel. Faye, a true New Yorker in the sense she was born elsewhere, lives in New York City.

Reviews

Shakespeare devotees will be impressed at the variations Faye introduces to the play's plotline, and Faye's considerable descriptive gifts are on ample display...Fans and newcomers alike will delight in Faye's remarkable achievement.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Faye's latest is not only a richly realized mash-up of mystery and fantasy, it's also a clever pastiche of Hamlet. . . [Ben and Horatio's] evolving relationship is brilliantly realized, as, for that matter, is the entire book, which is, alas, ever faithful to the original, which is, remember, a tragedy. The curtain falls."--Booklist (starred review)

Lush and magical, thoughtful and provocative, The King of Infinite Space is a remarkable achievement, staying true to Shakespeare's tragic play in ways that will surprise and delight while reveling in neurodivergence, queer attraction and quantum physics....[T]his is a novel to stick with for its rewards of a surprising plot and Faye's delightful storytelling."--BookPage (starred review)

Wildly imaginative. . . Faye perfectly juxtaposes corrosive ambition, jealousy, and madness against the ineffable strength of love over distance, time, and space. . . [Faye's] exciting new work should be especially appealing to readers who were intrigued by the reimaginings of Anne Tyler, Margaret Atwood, or Jeanette Winterson for the Hogarth Press Shakespeare project.--Library Journal

"Bardolators will enjoy the clever changes Faye rings on his storylines and characters. . . The ending is just as bloody as Shakespeare's and nearly as poignant. Smart and suspenseful; top-notch popular fiction."--Kirkus Reviews
