Recent press

  • “Kawakami unflinchingly takes the reader through the abyss of depraved, dehumanizing behavior with keen psychological insight, brilliant sensitivity, and compassionate understanding. With this, the author’s star continues to rise.”
    — Publishers Weekly (Starred Review), Feb 12 2021
  • “A slim, sharply pointed knife of a novel.”
    — Kirkus Reviews, Feb 10 2021
  • “Kawakami is a writer who doesn’t shy away from hard truths and painful experiences, so this will not be an easy read, but it’s guaranteed to be a rewarding one.”
    — Japan Times (Books to Look Forward to in 2021), Feb 2 2021
  • “Hopkins admits to having enjoyed writing Cathedral immensely, and this is evident in the compassion, humour, pathos and sheer vivacity of a novel which signals the arrival of a bright new talent on the historical fiction stage.”
    — The Historical Novel Society, Jan 29 2021
  • “This book is funny, maddening, and surprisingly sentimental and compassionate. It seems incredible to flip through the one hundred and fifty or so pages that comprise this novel and realize how much there is still to talk about.”
    — Asymptote, Jan 27 2021
  • ★ “An expansive fictional epic addressing themes of art, religion and power in the mode of Ken Follett or Umberto Eco [ . . . ] Hopkins’s compelling and descriptive tale will leave readers eager for more.”
    — Shelf Awareness (Starred Review), Jan 27 2021
  • “Le Corre brilliant integrates a mystery plot line into a vivid evocation of a lesser-known period in French history in this enthralling novel [giving him] an opportunity to display his gifts at writing tense scenes [ . . . ] Fans of Armand Cabasson won’t want to miss this one.”
    — Publishers Weekly (Starred Review), Jan 25 2021
  • “Kover’s translation of French author Coulon’s best-selling and prize-winning novel is sharp and engaging. Readers will furiously turn pages to uncover the fate of the cursed Paradise farm.”
    — Booklist, Jan 25 2021
