Quotes & Awards

  • “A timely novella with a powerful thematic punch, Neuvel’s latest is set in a dystopian future where immigrants seeking citizenship in England must pass a harrowing test…Obvious political commentary aside, the questions Neuvel asks readers are simple yet profound: What does it mean to be human? Is one person’s life less valuable than another’s because of ethnic, religious, or socioeconomic differences? Is the true nature of humankind fear and hate or love and acceptance? Thought-provoking and disturbing. A cautionary tale illuminated with dark enlightenment.”
