Reviews
"Shockingly original, stunningly written, Nadia is fierce, funny, and tragic, filled with encroaching dread about a Serbian ex-sniper and a young Bosnian refugee who is so distinctive she should be patented. Like Emily St. John Mandel, the author plants us in a cryptic, dangerous new reality we never doubt for a second. To say I loved this novel is an understatement. To say you should read it is a command."--Caroline Leavitt, author, With or Without You

"From its very first sentence, Christine Evans's Nadia sweeps the reader up in a riveting tale of war, survival, love, and trauma. The story is set in London, just after the Balkan Wars, but is less about fighting than about the way any war forces those caught in it to face who they really are, what they believe, and what they will do about it. Nadia is immensely rewarding to read, touching both the intellect and the heart."--Helen Benedict, author, Wolf Season

"Christine Evans writes with masterful restraint, achieving a literary debut that is both a page-turner and an exquisite rendering of queer resilience despite the specters of war. Like the quiet after a gunshot, the silences in Nadia crackle with threat. You won't be able to put it down."--Sarah Cypher, author, The Skin and Its Girl

"Christine Evans's Nadia is a brilliant meditation on how the forgotten will fight tooth and nail to be remembered, sneak in through the trap doors of our hearts, and border our vision. A master storyteller, Evans bends time and space with the precision of a mystic physicist."--Sabrina Orah Mark, author, Happily: A Personal History with Fairy Tales
