Product description

Review

PRAISE FOR EVERYONE BRAVE IS FORGIVEN

"Cleave's foray into historical fiction is both grand and intimate. The novel's ability to stay small and quiet against the raging tableau of war is what also makes it glorious....an absorbing account of survival, racism, classism, love and pain, and the scars left by all of them...Cleave's prose is imbued with a Dickensian flair, deploying brilliant metaphors and crackling dialogue."
--New York Times Book Review, Editor's Pick

"With dazzling prose, sharp English wit, and compassion, Cleave paints a powerful portrait of war's effects on those who fight and those left behind."
--People Magazine Book of the Week

"[An] intimate war epic...Cleave unflinchingly exposes the personal hang-ups of his characters as they grapple with hard life choices. He harnesses his immense talent for crafting gorgeously insightful turns of phrase to show us how courage and cowardice sometimes exist side-by-side in the same person -- even in the same decision...both searing and timeless."
--Seattle Times

"The London Blitz is cinematically re-imagined in a deeply moving new novel from Chris Cleave. As he did in Little Bee, he places forthright characters in impossible situations in Everyone Brave Is Forgiven, a story set during World War II."
--Carol Memmott, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"Magnificent and profoundly moving... This dazzling novel of World War II is full of unforgettable characters and the keen emotional insights that moved readers of Chris Cleave's Little Bee."
--Shelf Awareness

"Among all the recent fictions about the war, Cleave's miniseries of a novel is a surprising standout, with irresistibly engaging characters who sharply illuminate issues of class, race, and wartime morality."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Real, engaging characters, based loosely on Cleave's own grandparents, come alive on the page. Insightful, stark, and heartbreaking, Cleave's latest novel portrays the irrepressible hopefulness that can arise in the face of catastrophe."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Intensely felt...Full of insight and memorably original phrasings, the story is leavened by sardonic humor... Cleave paints an emotion-filled portrait of a damaged city with its inequities amplified by war and of courageous individuals whose connections to one another make them stronger."
--Booklist

"Wonderful...Everyone Brave is Forgiven asks hard questions with no easy answers, reminding us of the price we pay every day just for being human."
--Miami Herald

PRAISE FOR CHRIS CLEAVE

Praise for Gold

"Cleave has the extremely rare power of making you smile with lively language and clever observations while he is thoroughly, irreparably breaking your heart."
--New York Newsday

"Cleave is an acutely intelligent wordsmith. Some of the sentences cut so deep you want to scream out in pain and recognition...This is an inspirational and moving novel in so many ways, and everyone should read it."
--The Times (UK)

Praise for Little Bee

"Little Bee will blow you away....In restrained, diamond-hard prose, Cleave alternates between these two characters' points of view as he pulls the threads of their dark -- but often funny -- story tight. What unfolds between them...is both surprising and inevitable, thoroughly satisfying if also heart-rending."
--Washington Post

"Immensely readable and moving...an affecting story of human triumph."
--The New York Times Book Review

Praise for Incendiary

"A mesmerizing tour de force: ragged, breathless, full of raw emotion, the blackest of humor and relentless action."
--The Washington Post Book World

"Brilliant...This is a haunting work of art."
--Newsweek
