The new novel from the author of The People’s Act of Love

‘entertaining, vastly intelligent’


The New Yorker

‘a dazzingly drawn modern saga’


Entertainment Weekly

‘Addictive...a story about families and betrayal, genetics and inheritance, sex and responsibility in the post-religious world – and also about parasites, cancer, time, birth, death and forgiveness...seldom less than compelling.’


The Guardian, London

‘Coming into The Heart Broke In is like entering a hurricane; we end by reaching the cyclone’s eye, and we leave it exhausted, shaken’


Le Figaro, Paris

‘A complex meditation on death and time and the family’


The Independent, London
