Praise

Advance praise for The Late Americans:

“Erudite, intimate, hilarious, poignant . . . A gorgeously written novel of youth’s promise, of the quest to find one’s tribe and one’s calling.” —Leigh Haber, Oprah Daily

“[An] intense, finely tuned book. Taylor is an inimitable talent.”Elle

“Provocative . . . Through Taylor’s signature intimacy, we see casual emotional devastation, prickly social interactions, and wry humor with keen clarity.” —Vulture

“Brandon Taylor writes with such precision and perception that reading his work is an immersive experience: you inhabit his characters, you share their nerve endings. The Late Americans is a brilliant and electrifying symphony of a novel. I loved it.”  —Lily King, author of Writers & Lovers and Euphoria

Praise for Brandon Taylor:
 
“Taylor has a talent for taking the dull hum of quotidian life and converting it into lyrics.” —John Paul Brammer, New York Times Book Review
 
“Taylor [is] a brilliantly inventive storyteller, and one whose beautifully drawn characters have that rare ability to really make you care.” —Vogue

“While Taylor is a gifted descriptive writer, it’s the way he gets into his characters’ heads in the moment and in the aftermath—the confusion, the anger, the longing—that’s so hard to shake.” —Vanity Fair

“With a stark and unwavering eye and a deep respect for his subjects, Taylor builds instantly recognizable tales of longing and desire.” —Elle
