Review

'Fantastically readable' - The Times

'It will...make you question what it means to be human and what you'd do in a similar situation' - The Sun

'Gripping' - Shortlist

'Get in early before the hype begins' - Star Magazine

'Mott tackles some big themes here, especially the vagaries of spirituality, and scores with one of the most emotionally resonant works in many seasons' - --Essence Magazine

'The Returned transforms a brilliant premise into an extraordinary and beautifully realized novel. My spine is still shivering from the memory of this haunting story. Wow.' --Douglas Preston, #1 bestselling author of The Monster of Florence

'A deft meditation on loss that plays out levels of consequence on both personal and international stages. Mott allows the magic of his story to unearth a full range of feelings about grief and connection.' - Aimee Bender, New York Times bestselling author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

'When a novel is about people returning from the dead, you might expect it to be macabre, gruesome or jokey. The Returned is, instead, a wondrous surprise. With fine craftsmanship and a deep understanding of the human condition, Jason Mott has woven a tale that is in turns tragic and humorous and terrifying.
And after you have stayed up all night reading this remarkable debut, you, too, will be left with the questions: What would you do if a long-dead loved one appeared at your door step?
Surely this will spark many a fabulous book club discussion.'- Eowyn Ivey, Author of the New York Times bestseller The Snow Child

'…a breathtaking novel that navigates emotional minefields with realism and grace.' -Kirkus Reviews

'Mott brings a singularly eloquent voice to this elegiac novel, which not only fearlessly tackles larger questions about mortality but also insightfully captures life's simpler moments... A beautiful meditation on what it means to be human.' - --Booklist
