Product description


This dazzling dual-narrative novel is a fascinating meditation on fiction itself . Forest Dark finds Krauss at the top of her game. It is blazingly intelligent, elegantly written and a remarkable achievement (Emily St John Mandel Guardian)

A richly layered masterpiece; creative, profound, insightful, deeply serious, effortlessly elegant, both human and humane. Krauss is a poet and a philosopher, and this latest work does what only the very best fiction can do - startles, challenges and enlightens the reader, while showing the familiar world anew . to get lost in Forest Dark is to wonder. It is a pleasure and a privilege to read (Francesca Segal Financial Times)

A meditation on loss and transformation and an investigation of the mysteries of art and literature and family (Erica Wagner Observer)

Krauss writes with lyricism and mystery, but isn't above the odd cutting observational detail (Susie Rushton Vogue, 'Summer Reading')

Krauss is indeed a highly serious writer and also a very brilliant one . The prose is flawless ... Forest Dark is accomplished, generous and unabashedly serious (Cressida Connolly Literary Review)

A brilliant novel. I am full of admiration (Philip Roth)

Forest Dark shares much in common with Philip Roth's writing. Philosophical and intellectual, it explores identity, culture and the connections between the individual and history (Hannah Beckerman Sunday Express)

Krauss's elegant, provocative, and mesmerising novel is her best yet. Rich in profound insights and emotional resonance, it follows two characters on their paths to self-realisation . Nicole's conversations with Friedman and Epstein's with Klausner about God and the creation of the world are bracingly intellectual and metaphysical. Vivid, intelligent, and often humorous, this novel is a fascinating tour de force (Publishers Weekly)

This is a complex and rewarding novel that will linger long after you've reached the final page (Stylist)

She gives us a deft and mesmerising portrait of female midlife crisis and the desire to ground one's self in the world . impossible to put down (Sarah Hughes, Independent)

Nicole Krauss is always in control of the flow of ideas and allusions even as she evokes her two protagonists' increasingly feeble control over their own minds and sense of themselves. It is a remarkable accomplishment (Natasha Lehrer, Times Literary Supplement)

From the internationally bestselling, double Orange Prize-shortlisted author Nicole Krauss comes this ambitious novel of astonishing precision and dexterity ... Psychology, theological history, metaphysics and Kafka collide in this beautiful, inventive and intellectual work of fiction that deserves literary-prize recognition (Attitude Magazine)

She is evidently a novelist to be taken seriously . a lot of intelligence and writing has gone into this novel' (Yorkshire Post)

Her magnificent fourth novel, Forest Dark, a gorgeously written, effortlessly artful imitation of life . One thing is certain, she has not played it safe: Forest Dark is a cerebral novel in which she takes breathtaking risks, questioning received ideas about faith and identity, featuring Freud and, most vividly, Franz Kafka (Herald)

Forest Dark is the sort of intelligent, serious novel seldom written nowadays. Those shards of gleaming insight are well worth gathering up (The Times)

Krauss's prose is stately, patient and watchful (Daily Telegraph)

She writes with true emotional acuity and tenderness (Irish Times 2017-09-02)

Crystal clear. A sharp provocative and compelling piece of writing that was worth the wait (Big Issue)

Book Description

From the bestselling, twice Orange Prize-shortlisted, National Book Award-nominated author comes a vibrant tale of transformation: of a man in his later years and a woman novelist, each drawn to the Levant on a journey of self-discovery
