Product description

Review

This book is it: one of the best debut novels (and novels, period) of recent years. - Elle

Entrancing and magnificent. Don't say you were not told. Dazzling. - NoViolet Bulawayo, Booker-shortlisted author of 'We Need New Names'

Beautifully tender, and a powerfully crafted portrayal of intimacy and the rawness of human emotion that will linger with you long after you've finished reading it. - Otegha Uwagba, author of the Sunday Times bestseller 'Little Black Book'

An intimate epic about immigrant women's losses, triumphs and desires. A bold, tender debut; its characters thrum with life. - Luiza Sauma, author of 'Flesh and Bone and Water'

This is the book I didn't know I needed. This unexpected family, this history, this embrace of the sacred and the profane, this easy humour, this deeply felt human-ness, this messy, perfect love story. - Jade Chang, bestselling author of 'Wangs vs the World'

Glorious... a sharp, bracing, often hilarious family epic about a young woman tormented by the relentless ghosts of her past while in search of an American Dream that is not always available to those who seek it. - Samantha Irby, New York Times Bestselling author of 'We Are Never Meeting in Real Life'

Wondrous. A nimble, vibrant, deeply moving feat, full of heart, humour and wisdom. - Irenosen Okojie, author of 'Speak Gigantular'

Epic in its scale, sharp-as slam-poetry on the sentence level. Profound and mesmerising. - Meena Kandasamy, author of 'When I Hit You'

Blazingly fearless... Castillo is hugely talented - Observer

Radical... I was startled at how moved I was - Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, Guardian

Critical and compelling - New York Times

The next big thing... It has drama and tragedy in spades, but it also has so much love of every kind spilling out of it pages that I closed it each night with a huge, warm smile - The Paris Review

This book is it: one of the best debut novels (and novels, period) of recent years - Elle

Entrancing and magnificent. Don't say you were not told. Dazzling. - NoViolet Bulawayo, Booker-shortlisted author of 'We Need New Names'

Epic, soaring, brilliant - Sharlene Teo, author of ‘Ponti’

Epic in its scale, sharp-as slam-poetry on the sentence level. Profound and mesmerising. - Meena

Kandasamy, author of 'When I Hit You' Beautifully tender, and a powerfully crafted portrayal of intimacy and the rawness of human emotion that will linger with you long after you've finished reading it. - Otegha Uwagba, author of the Sunday Times bestseller 'Little Black Book'

This is the book I didn't know I needed. This unexpected family, this history, this embrace of the sacred and the profane, this easy humour, this deeply felt human-ness, this messy, perfect love story. - Jade Chang, bestselling author of 'Wangs vs the World'

A sprawling tale of three generations of Filipino women, this wonderful book encompasses everything from political upheaval to familial understanding. - Stylist

Elaine Castillo's full-throated debut, America is Not the Heart is quite simply one of the best first novels I've ever read. - John Freeman, Lit Hub

If peaches were the most tender fruit of 207 thanks to Call Me By Your Name, this year prepare to have your heart melted by a persimmon. - AnOther Magazine

In this complex, nuanced novel, Castillo delves into a reality too often ignored by mainstream America, uncovering universal emotional truths along the way. - Harper's Bazaar, best April books

Castillo emerges as one of 208's boldest new voices with this debut. - Entertainment Weekly

I really love this book. - Sam Baker, The Pool
