About the Author

Dara Horn was named one of Granta's "Best of Young American Novelists" and has won numerous literary awards.

An elegant musing on sacredness, history, and purpose that is, at the same time, a deliciously romantic, highly suspenseful page-turner.--Geraldine Brooks, author of The Secret Chord
The question at the heart of this wise and appealing novel is finally not how Rachel finds meaning in her eternal life. It is how we, despite our portions of sorrow, tedium and disaster, persist in finding meaning in ours.--Joshua Max Feldman
Rachel speaks with the wisdom of the ancients when she observes that immortality offers no consolation for the death of others. 'Not dying doesn't make it better," she says of all that sorrow. 'It only makes it take longer.'--Sam Sachs
Horn does not hedge her bets, whipping up a Jewish telenovela of ancient-world drama and present-day complications. It'll put you off immortality for good.--Marion Winik
Most of us have had days where we question if existence is worth it; some of us have experienced an old flame that just won't go out. In this hilarious and haunting story, Rachel, a mere 2,000 years old, has experienced both.
Eternal Life takes the psychological novel to places I've never seen before...Riveting, startling, hilarious, and sad--I've never read anything like it.--Elif Batuman, author of The Idiot
