“A tour de force . . . [Willis] is one of America’s finest writers.”
—The Denver Post
“This compassionate and deeply imagined novel . . . gives the reader a strong you-were-there feeling.”
“[Willis has] researched Blackout so thoroughly, her readers may imagine she had access to the time machine her characters use.”
—The Seattle Times
“A page-turning thriller . . . Willis uses detail and period language exquisitely well, creating an engaging, exciting tale.”
From the Trade Paperback edition.
