Product Details


“A lyrical novel of psychological suspense…Powerfully rendered.”
Wall Street Journal

“An audacious tour de force, The Survivors takes you deep into an emotional labyrinth. You’ll cry for these brothers. For the men they became, for the boys they were, for the innocence they lost. Brilliant, haunting and unforgettable.”
—Fredrik Backman
, author of A Man Called Ove

The Survivors is a tight, tense marvel of emotional and psychic pain that is as chilling as it is heartbreaking. With precise, evocative prose it winds and coils towards a remarkable conclusion that left me breathless.”
Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street and These Women

“In this taut thriller, three grown brothers bear their mother’s ashes to a remote lakeside cabin, where they pore over a crime committed twenty years earlier…Their shared history is a Pandora’s box of secrets.”
Oprah Daily

“A bleak and beautiful tale of a shattered family and one terrible summer.”
Literary Hub, CrimeReads

“Startling and original.”
Kirkus (starred review)

“Searing…Schulman writes in an understated prose and has an intuitive feel for the subtleties of gesture and memory.”
Publishers Weekly

“Already an international bestseller, Schulman’s novel is extraordinary in its structure…An entrancing, gripping read.”

“Evokes a landscape seen through a child’s eyes, where beauty and terror are inseparable…An accomplished debut.”
The Guardian
