Praise

“Kluger smoothly covers the technical aspects of life on the ISS and neatly contrasts international cooperation in space with conflict back on Earth. Readers who enjoyed Kluger’s depiction of the Apollo 13 rescue effort will appreciate the reciprocity of a rescue of Earth from space.”
Publishers Weekly

“Interlacing high-stakes action with ethical urgency, Holdout is a large-hearted thriller whose reluctant heroine—the astronaut-turned-activist Walli Beckwith—reminds us that the least likely platforms can be used to spark change.”
Jessica Bruder, author of Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century 

Holdout is a beautiful, character-driven story that moves the reader seamlessly from the Amazon basin to the International Space Station. It is brilliant, both technically in its descriptions of an astronaut’s mission, and as a literary tour de force that moves the human heart.”
Admiral James Stavridis USN, Supreme Allied Commander at NATO (2009-2013), coauthor of 2034: A Novel of the Next World War

“One of those rare books that is both a ripping good read and a parable for our times. Holdout doesn’t shy away from the big questions. It is deeply imagined, morally complex, and stayed with me long after the last page.”
Elliot Ackerman, author of Dark at the Crossing, a National Book Award finalist, coauthor of 2034: A Novel of the Next World War
