Reviews

"McKeon's fiction serves up, without cliche, what so many futuristic dystopian novels aspire to: a reminder that human beings can bring about their own demise."--Publishers Weekly
"A startling achievement....McKeon's characters may already have receded into history, but by imprinting their triumphs and tragedies onto the imagination with such visceral empathy, he has given them a deserving afterlife in this powerful novel."--Anthony Marra, New York Times Book Review
"Brilliantly imagined in its harrowing account of the Chernobyl disaster and exhilarating in its sweep, All That Is Solid Melts into Air is a debut to rattle all the windows and open up the ventricles of the heart....McKeon is here to stay."--Colum McCann
"Set amidst the Chernobyl disaster, McKeon's...graceful writing gives depth to his characters as they navigate indelibly changed landscapes and search for connection within chaos."--Booklist
"This debut novel is set in 1986, the year of the catastrophe at Chernobyl, and that disaster serves as the dramatic backdrop for the unfolding of action and character.... Serious and thoughtful fiction."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"This startling debut novel is a love story set against the harrowing tale of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.... A promising debut; highly recommended."--Library Journal (starred review)
