Reviews

PRAISE FOR THIS BRIGHT RIVER:

"Ingenious, dark, thrilling and heartbreaking, This Bright River contains prose that will tempt you to linger on the page and a plot that simply won't let you. Just fantastic."--Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl
"In This Bright River, Patrick Somerville brings us two vivid characters knocked hard by life, guiding them through perilous places on a journey that reveals the weight of family history, its constant pull, the way it makes and unmakes us. The result is a novel that is both intimate and mysterious, harrowing and brave."--Megan Abbott, author of The End of Everything and Dare Me
"This Bright River is a flood of virtuoso prose and characterization. Mystery, memory, pain, and a courageous strand of love are interwoven in a riveting narrative of voices, all singing, all merging into the singular vision of one of American literature's young masters."--Nic Pizzolatto, author of Galveston
"This Bright River is nothing short of extraordinary. Somerville has a gift for writing gorgeous prose, complete with sharp humor and a perfect sense of place. But that's only half the story. There's also a great romance here and a shocking set of mysteries that get untangled along the way. Addictive, amazing, unforgettable."--J. Courtney Sullivan, bestselling author of Maine
