“If you want a book unlike any you have ever read, but like so many of the delicious things in our culture (The Oprah Winfrey show, Interview magazine) you have no reason not to begin the original, fascinating and humane Book of Formation.” —Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be?
“Sickness, celebrity, a dismayingly plausible quasi-religious movement—The Book of Formation takes a long, strange look at a culture in crisis and comes back with something magical and engrossing. This is a more than promising debut.”—Tom Bissell, author of Extra Lives
“Here in The Book of Formation, self-invention, reinvention and their elaborate culture go under the knife.”—Jesse Ball, author of How to Set a Fire and Why
“A debut reminiscent of modern art—often unsettling, not always easy or beautiful, but rewarding to the reader willing to grapple with its questions.” —KIRKUS REVIEW
“Ambitious… strikingly intelligent.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
“Hypnotic, genre-bending… Question(s) the nature of faith, entertainment, celebrities, and ultimately, the way we tell our own stories.” —INTERVIEW MAGAZINE
