Product Details


Praise for Lurkers

“How is Lurkers simultaneously hilarious and horrifying? I’ll tell you how: PURE GENIUS. Sandi Tan populates Santa Claus Lane, her leafy corner of suburban LA, with such viscerally original characters that I found myself laughing at their outrageousness while nodding at their familiar humanity. Every page of this wildly original book is a surprise and a delight.”
—Kevin Kwan, bestselling author of Crazy Rich Asians

“Sandi Tan’s Lurkers is an acid-etched American Beauty for our current moment. But rather than suburban white male dread, Lurkers excavates the deeper mysteries and dark humor of female desire and a cultural and existential desperation so heavy it takes both tragedy and catastrophe to root it loose. A sneaky marvel of a novel and not to be missed.”
—Megan Abbott, bestselling author of Give Me Your Hand

Lurkers is a remarkable book. It’s funny, sad, vicious, generous, at times genuinely scary, at times absolutely heartbreaking—often, all on the same page. Sandi Tan somehow manages to perfectly capture the twisted, infuriating, beautiful soul of Southern California in the mid-aughts with all its seemingly irreconcilable contradictions . . . The fictional inhabitants of Santa Claus Lane are so well wrought that you find yourself convinced that if you just drove around long enough, you might find them hanging around in a living room or a liquor store just outside of LA.” 
—Justin Kuritzkes, author of Famous People

Praise for The Black Isle
The Black Isle is an elegant, disturbing and satisfying read, both epic and intimate.” 
—Los Angeles Times

“Beautifully written, with a storyline that spans 70 years, The Black Isle is a historical novel that is both breathtaking and haunting.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Mesmerizing . . . A gripping historical novel . . . Tan’s imagination seems boundless.”
Publishers Weekly, Pick of the Week
“A young woman grows old with the twentieth century, haunting her own life as history conspires to render her a secret. Sweeping in scope, impressively imagined, ruthlessly readable.”
Steve Erickson, author of These Dreams of You
