“A literary page-turner…A really compelling plotline.” —Wall Street Journal

“[An] amazing work of fiction . . . A dense, yet beautifully spun and satisfying tale that spans 50 years . . . Spare, yet gorgeously robust prose . . . and every page is imbued with [Benjamin’s] obvious storytelling skill. . . . Begin 2018 with the book that could easily retain the year’s top spot, The Immortalists is a can’t-put-down, makes-you-think tale of a not-so-average American family.” –Associated Press

“The reader will likely be thoroughly taken by the world of the Gold siblings, in all its shades of brilliant color. It’s not a totally comfortable realm, since we know all too well how this tale’s going to end, but getting there is lovely.” –

“Search no further for your inaugural 2018 book club pick.”—Elle
“Thrilling.”—Marie Claire

“Centered on four siblings and spanning decades, The Immortalists asks a seemingly simple yet unimaginably complex question: If you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life? The search for the answer makes for a sprawling, enchanting family saga.”—Entertainment Weekly (Must-List)

“Chloe Benjamin’s family saga deftly explores destiny versus choice.”—US Weekly

“A family saga about love, destiny, living life and making choices that will cause readers to consider what to do with the time given them on this earth.” –Huffington Post

“Chloe Benjamin is a novelist to watch….The Immortalists weaves together philosophy and fortune-telling, to great effect….As deft and dizzying as a high-wire act…the reader is beguiled with unexpected twists and stylish, crisp prose….Unwittingly, this ambitious, unorthodox tale may change you too.”The Economist


“As you follow [the siblings] toward their fates in this magical family saga, you’ll appreciate the unexpected in your own life.”—Redbook

“A moving novel about the deep bonds of family.”—Southern Living

“Beautifully written and intricately detailed, it’s impossible to put down and sure to be one of those books you’ve got to re-read again and again.”—Popsugar 

“Intriguing premise…Beautifully written story.”—AARP

“Suspenseful, compassionate, inquisitive, and wholly captivating.”—Bustle

“Continually ratcheting up the tension…A Jewish-American family saga.”—Newsday

“Magical…There are moments as taut as a thriller, where time disappears as you turn pages; and passages of quiet compassion.”—The Seattle Times

[Benjamin] casts a spell with…her affecting family saga.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“Believe the hype about this one.” –HelloGiggles

“If you’ve ever had an existential thought in your life, you’ll see yourself in every sibling—in their gut-wrenchingly human existence—and be reminded that life is by turns complicated, fun, disastrous, painful, and out of our control.”—Goop

“An imaginative and satisfying family saga…A cleverly structured novel steeped in Jewish lore and the history of four decades of American life. The four Gold siblings are wonderful creations, and in Benjamin’s expert hands their story becomes a moving meditation on fate, faith, and the family ties that alternately hurt and heal.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Bewitching and provocative…Benjamin has created mesmerizing characters and richly suspenseful predicaments in this profound and glimmering novel of death’s ever-shocking inevitability and life’s wondrously persistent whirl of chance and destiny.”—Booklist (starred review)

“The narratives [Benjamin] offers are intriguingly intertwined and beautifully rendered….Thought-provoking and entertaining.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“Chloe Benjamin’s The Immortalists is the very best kind of literary thriller, its suspense deriving from characters we care about deeply and surprises that feel embedded in our shared humanity. As profound a meditation on destiny as readers are likely to encounter.”—Richard Russo

“For someone who loves stories about brothers and sisters, as I do, The Immortalists is about as good as it gets. A memorable and heartfelt look at what might happen to a family who knows too much. It’s amazing how good this book is.‎”—Karen Joy Fowler

“A beautiful, compassionate, and even joyful novel. Chloe Benjamin has written an inspiring book that makes you think hard about what you want to do with the time you’re given. This is not really a book about dyingit’s a book about how to live.”—Nathan Hill, author of The Nix
