Praise for The Immortalists

“2018’s First Must-Read.”—Entertainment Weekly

“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 (25 Must-Read Books for Fall)

“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)

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

“One of the buzziest books of 2018.”—Bookpage

“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

“A literary tour de force…Benjamin subtly but trenchantly examines issues of mortality and immortality, destiny and self-determination, magic and science, the past and the future, and the trials and joys of our fleeting but precious existences. A beautifully written page-turner, unpredictable and unforgettable, The Immortalists is ultimately a thoughtful and tender look at how we live our lives in our fraught and perilous times.”—Judith Claire Mitchell, author of A Reunion of Ghosts

Praise for The Anatomy of Dreams

“A debut novel of subtlety, depth, intrigue, and tenderness. Chloe Benjamin is a great new talent.”—Lorrie Moore

“Chloe Benjamin’s ambitious debut novel matches the subtle surrealism of a dream with the underpinnings of a thriller. Back and forth in time like so many memories coming to light at once, Benjamin has produced a wholly original tale.”—Emma Straub

“The way that Benjamin gives equal weight to both the romantic relationship and the novel’s more cerebral, philosophical questions is impressive—and a feat we hope to see in many more books to come.”—Nylon

“Uncertainty lingers through much of Benjamin’s book, which has all the trappings of a scary thriller, but which skillfully converts itself into something more genteel and, in a way, more methodical: a study of the grim work of growing up.”—Washington Independent Review of Books

“A majestic collision of sci-fi thriller and love story that explores, as the title claims, the anatomy of dreams—their power, both chilling and beautiful—through the lens of a young couple….It’s a riveting tale that will instantly transfix readers.”—Bustle

“This elegant first novel is both driving mystery and stirring love story…A fast-paced, satisfying read from a bright new talent.”—Refinery 29
