Neverhome Press Reviews

'A brilliant and breathtaking blaze of a novel' -- Clare Clark Guardian

'A spare, beautiful novel, so deeply about America and the language of America that its sentences seem to rise up from the earth itself. Laird Hunt had me under his spell from the first word of Neverhome to the last. Magnificent' -- Paul Auster
