This isn't a book. It's a touchstone. It's an oracle. It's a mirror in which you will see your authentic self, reflected on the pages. The Perishing is one part lyrical mystery, one part history lesson you didn't learn in school, one part time machine. It's a lush, genre-smashing, philosophical experience of a novel that blew my mind even as it broke my heart. --Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

"Remarkable, strange, and richly inventive, Natashia Deón's The Perishing will keep you up all night and haunt you long afterward. Deón's newest novel is a wonder and a feat." --R.O. Kwon, author of The Incendiaries

"I loved traveling through Natashia Deon's haunting vision of our intertwined past and future; her gaze is both unflinching and deeply compassionate, the truest view of humanity in our everlasting present." --Jade Chang, author of The Wangs vs. the World

For a second time, Deón has proven herself a magnificent, artful storyteller. The Perishing is by turns mysterious, heartbreaking, and inspiring. I love this novel and its courageous protagonist. --De'Shawn Charles Winslow, author of In West Mills
