The Ash Family floored me.

-- "Bret Johnston, author of Remember Me Like This"

In The Ash Family, the brilliant Molly Dektar explores and explodes the lines between ally and enemy, between collaboration and sabotage, between blessing and threat. Dektar evokes the irresistible beauty of the wilderness, and then exposes its ravaging harshness. This mesmerizing, terrifying book asks the hard questions: What should humankind do in the face of environmental catastrophe? Where does the individual end and the communal begin? A powerful tale by a powerful new writer.

-- "Helen Phillips, author of Some Possible Solutions and The Beautiful Bureaucrat"

In her excellent debut, Dektar probes life in a cult with a masterful hand...Dektar's eloquent, often poetic prose draws readers into this disturbing, powerful novel.
