“A yearning meditation on the nature of love, fate and how our past(s) might determine our future.” —The New York Times

“The joy of watching Evison braid together multiple stories from Eugene’s lives (and the 105 years of this existence) is akin to witnessing a master carpet weaver work out a fantastically intricate rug…In revealing the tricks of his trade, its author exposes the tender heart of his craft.” The Los Angeles Times

“Imaginative and meticulous puzzle of a new novel.” The Seattle Times

“Stories provide hope, and in Evison’s history-rich narrative, readers will find fabulous tales that send a message of love straight to their hearts.” —Shelf Awareness

“A heartfelt message about loyalty in a wildly inventive package.”—Real Simple

“Jonathan Evison’s writing is as smooth as a well-aged single barrel whiskey and goes down just as satisfying.”—Spokesman-Review (Spokane)

“Evison takes the reader across centuries, chasing long-lost love through various chapters of history while learning how to value the present.” Inlander

“A touching fantastical tale…Evison evokes genuine emotions…This touches the heart.”Publishers Weekly

“Tender and delightful…Evison imbues his big-hearted narrative with sumptuous mystery and intrigue tracing Eugene’s quest for love amid undiminished hope.” Booklist

“Jonathan Evison’s latest is one of those rare, captivating books that you can’t help but be drawn into. This outstanding tale of tales had me turning pages long after dark and kept me delightfully off-kilter all the way to the end. A gorgeous story about love, loss, and eternal hope.”—Shelby Van Pelt, New York Times bestselling author of Remarkably Bright Creatures

“Evison’s dazzling new novel does what the best literature does, pulls us out of our lives and plunges us into another—in this case many others—and it does it in a way that is truly, mindbendingly, genius. A stunning Scherazade-told tale about the only subject that matters—love—Again and Again is about the stories we tell ourselves to create ourselves, the stories we believe, and the way a human heart can shatter and still find a kind of wholeness. To say I loved this book is an understatement.”—Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You and With or Without You

“A beguiling and big-hearted literary page-turner, Again and Again brims with narrative brio while also partaking in a poignant, timeless wisdom. Eugene’s voice enchanted me from the first page and wove its way into the fibers of my being, even and especially when I felt him start to tug at the rug under my feet.”—Antoine Wilson, author of Mouth to Mouth and Panorama City

“Who is Eugene Miles?  Visigoth thief, prisoner, centenarian, slave, janitor, decorated Marine—even, for a life, Oscar Wilde’s cat—or just a lonely old yarnspinner, a liar?  Jonathan Evison’s shapeshifting narrator may be stuck in a nowhere nursing home, yet he transports the reader to Seville under the Moors, Victorian London and every era of 20th century L.A.  Spanning a thousand years and one timeless love, Again and Again is a fantastical tale of longing and regret, and maybe also a sneaky fable of both how fallible and how hopeful we can be.”—Stewart O’Nan, author of Henry, Himself
