Praise

Advance praise for Island:

“Reading Island is a searing, vertiginous experience. Hailing Conrad’s Heart of Darkness to interrogate our current moment in history, Skibsrud has created an uncanny and uncomfortable representation of power deeply corrupted. The text feels both historic and futuristic; it is discomfiting and necessary. Don’t look away.” —Erin Wunker, author of Notes From a Feminist Killjoy

Featured on the CBC’s list of “fiction to watch for this fall”

Praise for Johanna Skibsrud:

“It is exhilarating to join a novelist working at these bracing heights.” —The Washington Post

“Skibsrud is a master . . . [she] can make your head spin and dares you to think.” —The Winnipeg Free Press

“Skibsrud is a writer of profound intelligence whose talent deserves applause.” —The Chronicle-Herald

“Skibsrud crafts a fast-paced story of identity and insurrection . . . Island offers a thrilling vision of global corporate power played out in the lives of two headstrong and independent women who must confront various absences, including the intractable loss of identity.” —Quill & Quire
