Recensioner i media

An electrifying novel of love, creativity and madness... playful, tender and heart breaking * Guardian * What a wonderful, strange, terrifying, brilliant novel this is -- Kamila Shamsie Exquisitely calibrated... miraculously skilful... immersively real... Like all dramas, it has a resolution, and one of such eye-popping metaphysical grandeur that I couldn't spoil it even if I wanted to -- Paraic O'Donnell * Irish Times * A writer of immense imagination and talent... quite unlike any other book you'll pick up this year -- Best New Books for May 2019 * Stylist * Richly observed and engaging... [Newman] is a writer of wild imaginings... The Heavens swiftly upends all expectations with its speculative strangeness * Sunday Times * I love The Heavens... Elegiac and genuinely, unbelievably moving... by the time I got to the end of it, I wanted to go back and read the beginning... You've got to read this book -- Helen Lewis * BBC Radio 4 Saturday Review * I tore through The Heavens and loved it... unique and brilliant -- Adam Foulds, author * The Quickening Maze * I was bewitched by the ambition and charge of The Heavens, which is at once troubling and beautiful, emotionally resonant and fantastically strange -- Olivia Laing, author of * Crudo * Newman [writes with] agility and aplomb * TLS * The Heavens, shifting restlessly between worlds, gently encouraging Elizabethan England into eccentric New York, rolling everything into a dreamy, desperate new reality, is everything we expect from Sandra Newman. It's strange but focused, beautifully written and put together, dangerously benign, comic and clever, bright as a knife -- M. John Harrison, author * Light * Reading Sandra Newman's The Heavens is like falling up a brilliant flight of stairs. Inventive and moving and surprising on every level, it's a novel that doesn't just play with time and history and certainty: it turns those things inside out. I've been haunted by its characters and ideas ever since I reluctantly finished it -- Elizabeth McCracken, author * Thunderstruck & Other Stories * Every one of The Heavens' pages feels like that first shuddering spark of attraction...quick, flirtatious * Dazed * The writing is so sleek and the pace is so nimble, nothing is belaboured... a delightful literary bon bon that really took me away, so transfixing -- Katie Puckrik * BBC Radio 4 Saturday Review * Astute, mesmeric and quite alarming, The Heavens is absolutely captivating * Press Association * Really thought-provoking -- The Best Books to Read This May * Red Magazine * Wonderfully intriguing... thoughtful [and] gripping * Observer *
