Praise

LONGLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE
SHORTLISTED FOR THE MCKITTERICK PRIZE

LONGLISTED FOR THE DESMOND ELLIOT PRIZE
LONGLISTED FOR THE POLARI BOOK PRIZE

“Ingenious.” —The Guardian

“Intriguing. . . . The author’s grasp on the ideas at play effectively and poignantly connects readers with the characters’ grief.” —Publishers Weekly

“A conspicuously erudite, skilfully observed debut novel.” —Telegraph (UK)

“Ward has achieved something quite extraordinary: a super-smart, metaphysical romp that’s also warm, wistful and heartfelt.” —Daily Telegraph (UK)

“The sheer literary ambition on show is impressive, with Ward producing a highly original first novel that also echoes European experimentalists such as Kundera and Krasznahorkai.” —Spectator (UK)

“An imaginative and original synthesis of fiction and philosophy” —Irish Times

“Ward is as skilful an observer as she is an abstract thinker, and so her characters, while fulfilling their roles as illustrators of theories, also burst with life.” —Sunday Telegraph (UK)

“A refershing puzzle to unpick.” —Diva Magazine (UK)

“It’s rare for me to fall for a novel that could be called ‘experimental’ but this genuinely blew my mind.” The Literary Sofa

“A towering literary achievement.” Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things

“Philosophy meets fiction in this beguiling and intriguing novel of minds, hearts, other worlds, love, death and everything in between. It’s a book that dances and dazzles with ideas and left me thinking long after I finished it.” Sophie Kinsella
