Praise for Alison Stine's Road Out of Winter

Winner of the 2021 Philip K Dick Award for distinguished science fiction published in paperback original

"Richly imagined, deeply moving and unthinkably offers hope in a world that uncannily resembles ours currently in the thick of COVID-19.... Gloriously well-written." -Ms. Magazine

"With echoes of The Road and Winter's Bone, Stine's latest is an excellent feminist dystopian novel of survival, desperation and, ultimately, hope.... Sublimely written and with much for book clubs to discuss, this book is highly recommended for all collections." --Booklist, starred review

"Blends a rural thriller and speculative realism into what could be called dystopian noir. The author's vision is profoundly moving... Readers searching for a novel fueled by fierce intelligence and empathy will find here a celebration of humanity, and a warning against its loss."--Library Journal, starred review

"Haunting... Stine's prose is crisp and atmospheric, and though bleakness abounds, the ending strikes a lovely balance of hope and pathos. Fans of climate fiction and found family stories will be entranced." --Publishers Weekly

"A closely observed, evocative portrayal of place in a time of extreme duress. A warning about who we become and who we want to be in an uncertain future. Beautifully written and essential." --Jeff VanderMeer, New York Times bestselling author of Annihilation

"Stark, dark and strangely urgent, this is a book that grabs you on the first page and doesn't let go. Alison Stine is a master at the craft. She takes us on a wild ride inside a future that feels all too real, with characters we care about, and a story that we start wishing will never end." --Rene Denfeld, bestselling author of The Child Finder and The Butterfly Girl

"Like The Road infused with feminist grit, Alison Stine's Road out of Winter focuses on the true seeds of hope during a climate apocalypse: the things that nurture both our bodies and our souls. A startling and intimate look at what happens when our planet turns against us."--Mike Chen, author of A Beginning at the End
