Blurbs, Press & Reviews
Beautiful, mesmerizing, consoling, and under immaculate control, How Fires End is a powerful novel about the religion we create for ourselves as we face that which perhaps even God has not imagined for humanity.
— Alexander Chee, author of The Queen of the Night
How Fires End commences with such authority and grace that it hardly seems the work of a debut novelist. There is a great weight in the tenderness and simplicity of the voice of the narrator. It has gravitas without any sacrifice of beauty.
— Victoria Redel, author of Before Everything
