Product Details


“Provocative. . . .  [A] tensely executed thriller.”
     —The Wall Street Journal

You Disappear is not just a well-told story, but a dramatic recalibrating of what it means to have a mind—and a soul.” —Dara Horn, author of The World to Come

“Jungersen’s prose is alternately spare and lyrical, making this a page-turner where entire passages stay with you.”

“With incredible insight, Jungersen expresses the inner thoughts most people won’t say out loud after a loved one’s brain injury. I tore through this story page by page, relating to each and every complex emotion driven by unforeseen circumstances, as lives are thrown out of control.”

“Thought-provoking. . . . An intriguing read.”

“Brilliant. . . . Mia begins to suspect that many people around her suffer from brain damage, leaving the reader with an exciting sense of unease. ”
     —Publishers Weekly 

“This fast-paced, well-researched literary suspense novel keeps readers hooked until the final page. . . . Superb.”
     —Library Journal

Praise for Christian Jungersen

“Jungersen’s sparse, Danish approach to language is effective . . . leaving us with a humming tension.”
    —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“An argument can probably be made that some of the best recent Nordic writing has been detective fiction. . . . Jungersen stakes out a path all his own.”
   —The New Yorker

“Excellent on so many things. . . . There is a hugely empathetic imagination behind [The Exception], one that resists allowing us to fall into the simplifying judgments that are a necessary prelude to cruelty. Its characters seem deeply true to life.”
   —The New York Times Book Review

“Jungersen . . . writes evocatively and perceptively about sensitive topics, and offers provocative theories about what makes each of us who we are.”
   —Mostly Fiction
