Praise

“Blending radiant language and a dreamlike journey through sorrow and healing, this is one to recommend to fans of Sarah Addison Allen and Eowyn Ivey.”—Booklist
 
“…the core plot of The Art of Floating is touching and delivers quite an emotional punch.”—RT Book Reviews
 
“With a touch as light as air, Bair O’Keeffe delivers a powerful punch. The Art of Floating is an emotional, sensitive novel about what causes pain and what defines loss, where “what really happened” floats somewhere between the realms of the real and the impossible. Sweet as a summer breeze, aching as a frozen sea, this story drifts through quirky wordplay, the small town drama of coastal New England, and the lure of detachment from one’s own mind, without losing its tether. One man is lost, one man is found—how on earth, or underwater, or in the air, did this come to be?”—Lydia Netzer, bestselling author of Shine, Shine, Shine
 
“A triumph. A treasure. Tender, profound, and hilariously heartbreaking.  A gorgeously magical story that will have you saying  ”my favorite!” and then sharing it with everyone you know.”—Hank Phillippi Ryan (Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, and Mary Higgins Clark award winning author)
