Review Quotes:
"After stretching the boundaries of fiction in myriad ways...Egan does perhaps the only thing left that could surprise: she writes a thoroughly traditional novel. Realistically detailed, poetically charged, and utterly satisfying: apparently there's nothing Egan can't do." --Kirkus (starred review)


Review Quotes:
"Egan's propulsive, surprising, ravishing, and revelatory saga, a covertly profound page-turner that will transport and transform every reader, casts us all as divers in the deep, searching for answers, hope, and ascension." --Booklist (starred review)


Review Quotes:
"This large, ambitious novel shows Egan at the top of her game. Anna is a true feminist heroine, and her grit and tenacity will make readers root for her." -- Library Journal (starred review)


Review Quotes:
"A novel that deserves to join the canon of New York stories." -- Amor Towles, New York Times Book Review
