Product description

Review

"Exceptional debut ... a tale of complexity and tension...Waldman's prose is almost always pitch-perfect ... The characters are wholly realised and believable as individuals, but they also stand in for stories and conflicts that go beyond their own lives." (Kamila Shamsie Guardian, Book of the Week)

"From this coup de théâtre Waldman skilfully spins out an ever-widening cast list...This is a deeply thoughtful and moving account of the myriad ways in which, when the towers came down, the US psyche became a casualty too." (Michael Prodger Financial Times)

"An absorbing, accomplished debut...an intelligent, satisfying read" (Sunday Times)

"The novel is punctuated with darkly comic details ... compelling ...Elegantly written and tightly plotted... [this] novel, at once lucid, illuminating and entertaining is a necessary gift." (Claire Messud New York Times Book Review)

"Panoramic in scope but thrillingly light on its feet ... A gripping, deeply intelligent novel" (Marie Claire)

Review

"A masterful debut . . . Waldman unspools her story with the truth-bound grit of a seasoned journalist and the elegance of a born novelist." (Entertainment Weekly)

"Gripping, deeply intelligent . . . panoramic in scope but thrillingly light on its feet . . . [A] dazzling tapestry of a grieving city." (Marie Claire)

"Addictively readable...Not unlike The Wire's David Simon...Waldman has an eye for the less sound bite-worthy but crucial ways in which ideology and influence make their imprint on the world." (Vogue)

"The Submission reads as if the author had embraced Tom Wolfe's famous call for a new social realism...and in doing so has come up with a story that has more verisimilitude, more political resonance, and way more heart than Mr. Wolfe's own 1987 bestseller, The Bonfire of the Vanities." (The New York Times Book Review) --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
