Product Details


Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2024 by People, Elle, Book Riot and She Reads

“A cinematic epic.”

“With remarkable world-building, Askaripour takes readers on a vast and winding adventure through a future split by hemispheres, visibility, and power.”
Elle, “The Best New Books to Read in Summer 2024”

“The page-turning prose and standout characters will appeal to a wide range of readers. Part sf adventure, part mystery, part social satire, this is a vividly imagined and captivating story.”
—Booklist *starred review*

“This energetic, speculative deconstruction of colonialism feels like watching an expert put together a 1000-piece jigsaw.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Propulsive… A page-turning vision of a future made all too plausible by our volatile present.”

“Part political thriller and part sci-fi, This Great Hemisphere similarly explores the allure of power and the lengths people go to gain and retain it, but it’s also a story about rebellion, resilience and the strength to shape your own future.”

This Great Hemisphere is an inventive and immersive epic that follows its brave invisible protagonist as she navigates a futuristic new world that often mirrors our own. A thrilling page-turner.”
—Brit Bennett, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Half

This Great Hemisphere is a boldly imaginative sophomore novel from Askaripour. Too few writers have the courage to dream this big.”
—Jason Mott, National Book Award-winning author of Hell of a Book

This Great Hemisphere is a tense, urgent exploration of power in all its forms and how it corrupts. It’s a story of America and subjugation and hope and all the things some may choose not to see. An allegory reminiscent of Colson Whitehead’s Intuitionist and Zone One, this one will keep your brain churning long after you’ve finished it.”
—Yume Kitasei, author of The Stardust Grail

“Mateo Askaripour’s This Great Hemisphere is a wildly imaginative novel, bursting with cinematic fervor. The world-building here is meticulous and astounding. The characters are so well-realized that they haunt the heart, motivate the mind, and shake the soul. The story itself strikes the perfect balance between wisdom and warning. I can’t help but to think that the spirit of the great prophet Octavia Butler hovers over This Great Hemisphere. And quiet as it’s kept, Mateo Askaripour just might be that level of oracle, too. This is a fiery must-read.”
—Robert Jones, Jr., author of The New York Times bestselling novel, The Prophets, a finalist for the National Book Award
