Review

ADVANCE PRAISE:

‘Rivka Galchen’s Atmospheric Disturbances is playful yet profound, Murakami-esque yet original, analytical yet heartbreaking. It’s an absolutely stunning and unforgettable debut.’ Vendela Vida, author of Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name

'Rivka Galchen has written a powerful novel about love, longing, Doppler radar, and the true appreciation of a nice cookie with your tea. ‘Atmospheric Disturbances' is fantastic.' Nathan Englander, author of 'The Ministry of Special Cases'.

‘Reader, you are holding in your hand one of my favorite novels ever: Rivka Galchen's divinely hilarious, heartbreaking tale of Leo's search for his ‘lost’ wife Rema. This is a novel of Borgesian erudition, wit, and playfulness, though its obsessively pursued subject - as it rarely was in the Argentine's fiction - is love, the enraptured lover, and the mystery of the beloved, the intersection of love's fictions, realities, and pathologies. It is also as funny as any episode of the Simpsons (imagine Homer as a besotted and brilliant New York psychiatrist). The prose jumps with one astonishing observation, insight, and description after another. 'Atmospheric Disturbances' delivers unforgettable joy.' Francisco Goldman, author of 'The Divine Husband'.

‘Galchen has created a heart breaking puzzle of a novel. Hilarious and daring. The novel tracks the way we seek to destroy our most precious love affairs and, in doing so, our own sanity. The hero, Leo, is like a brilliant mad scientist trying to prove that the earth is flat, because he desperately needs a ledge high enough to jump off of.’ Heather O’Neill, author of Lullabies for Little Criminals

From the Publisher

Rivka Galchen's `Atmospheric Disturbances' is an extraordinary, mind-boggling and entertaining tale which will challenge the way you view reality.
