Reviews

Debra Jo Immergut brings her considerable literary talent to bear in this thrilling and beautifully-imagined exploration of a universally tantalizing notion--meeting your younger self! You Again is a swirling, propulsive novel of suspense and a deep dive into time, memory, art, family. Ambitious and enthralling.--James A. McLaughlin, author of Bearskin
"Stunning . . . feels eerily relevant, perfect for this time of deep uncertainty and rapidly shifting news. It is dreamlike and immersive, like falling into someone else's alternative reality."--New York Times Book Review
"You Again will have you rethinking everything."--Good Morning America ("A Novel to Read this Summer" selection)
"At once a mind-bending puzzle and a profound meditation on love, fate, ambition, and regret."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Immergut delivers a furious page-turner."--Booklist
"An alluring mystery . . . Immergut has constructed her tale as an ingenious maze. . . . Think of You Again as "A Portrait of the Artist as a Not-so-Young Woman," on a shelf that would include Claire Messud's The Woman Upstairs-- but with the addition of a mystery as a compelling chaser."--Washington Post
"Inventive. . . You Again, combining psychological suspense and fantasy, is a family-life novel, an art-world chronicle and an examination of the mutability of reality."--Wall Street Journal
[A] heart-pounding thriller.--Woman's World
With mesmerizing deftness, You Again brilliantly reimagines a woman's search for her lost ambition as a psychological thriller. This book takes the questions of middle age--What happens to an artist's creative force when she becomes a mother with a day job? Can we recover lost time and neglected passion? Is idealism the purview of the young?--and turns them inside out. An extraordinary book.--Heather Abel, author of The Optimistic Decade
So accomplished, so glorious--a complete original from page one. You may as well buy your second copy now."--Janet Fitch, author of The Revolution of Marina M. and Chimes of a Lost Cathedral
Debra Jo Immergut's You Again implicates the reader into a dark mystery that begins with suspicion and ends exactly where it must. Immergut writes this stunning portrait of a woman on the brink of collapse as only she can write it--which is to say, beautifully, intelligently, and full of compassion.--Brandon Hobson, National Book Award finalist and author of Where the Dead Sit Talking
Immergut's novel pushes at the contours of identity and change, asking how we can recognize ourselves after so many years have passed.--The Millions
Fast-paced . . . [YOU AGAIN] is at once a psychological mystery, an thriller and a meditation on time and memory."--Daily Hampshire Gazette
"A mind-bendingly brilliant look at memory, reality, fierce ambition and the lives we could have led."--AARP Magazine
