Review

Praise for Above

"Above pulls off that rare trick of being convincing and utterly magical at the same time." -Emma Donoghue, New York Times bestselling author of Room

"Leah Bobet's Above is that rarest of creatures, combining the outspoken honesty of a good first novel with the craft of a seasoned professional." -Elizabeth Bear, Hugo Award-winning author of Dust

*"[A] dark, dazzling tale...Bobet effortlessly blends reality and fantasy, her characters are both gifted and broken-hers is a world that is simultaneously fantastic and painfully real. Heartbreaking, romantic, complex, and magical, this fantasy lingers on the senses." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Bobet fearlessly takes the reader to uncomfortable places, where, as Matthew discovers, there is always more than one side to a story." -Quill & Quire

"[A] profoundly moving meditation on how we treat the mentally ill, disabled and homeless...Above is a soulful and spellbinding debut novel." -The National Post

"A tremendous adventure, as well as a meditation on how our mythologies shape us...a gorgeous tale." -Toronto Life

"[Readers] willing to go along with this captivating exploration of both individual and collective identity will find themselves pondering its implications long after the last page." -Kirkus

About the Author
