Author of Heartbreaker
“I want Van Halen to write the soundtrack and the Coen brothers to make the movie. (I'll give them a love song for the closing credits.) It plays out as a vivid, tender, complex magic. A totally compulsive, singular and wild read. The people in this book are so alive, and the book itself feels unthinkably new.”
Leslie Feist, Musician
"Devoted, as I am, to the oddities of northern, remote lands, I could not put this book down. In turns, hilarious and harrowing, Heartbreaker’s icy exactitude is direct, disturbed and entirely splendid."
Samantha Hunt, author of The Dark Dark, Mr. Splitfoot and The Invention of Everything Else
"Imagine a funnier, but more sinister, offspring of Peyton Place and Never Let Me Go, and you approximate the world of this stunning new novel. Claudia Dey’s beautiful, off-kilter music has been missing from our literary landscape for too long — a most welcome return."
Michael Redhill, Giller prize-winning author of Bellevue Square, Consolation and Fidelity
