About the Author

Jonathan Buckley has written eleven novels, including Nostalgia, The river is the river, and The Great Concert of the Night, which is also published by New York Review Books. He was the 2015 winner of the BBC National Short Story Award. He lives in Hove, England.


"Buckley's fiction is subtle and fastidiously low-key . . . every apparently loose thread, when tugged, reveals itself to be woven into the themes [and] gets better the more you allow it to settle in your mind." --Michael Faber, The Guardian

"Protean and wistful, Live; live; live dwells in the malleability of memory, tenderly pressing us to be astonished at the fragile and intricate stories that hold us together. Jonathan Buckley reaches with lyric elegance into the ancient archives of human experience to invite us to contemplate the foundational questions: What is hope? Where do we find harmony? What about one another do we hold sacred? With the help of Lucas Judd, Buckley's fallible and peculiar oracle, this dreamlike novel moves us to consider the multitude ineffable shapes of love and mercy." --Anna Badkhen

"Live; live; live plays eloquent witness to a liminal space, the boundary between the limits of rational thinking and the beginnings of occult mystification." --Sean Sheehan, The Prisma

"While Live; live; live might [be] a very subtle and low-key book, it's a beautifully poised novel about mys­teries both eternal and mundane. . . . The understated, though always elegant prose, gives the final pages of the novel a chill­ing, even dangerous edge. . . " --Ian Mond, Locus Magazine
