About the Author

Jeffrey Kluger is Editor at Large for TIME magazine and the author of ten books, including APOLLO 13, APOLLO 8, and two novels for young adults. He has written more than forty cover stories for TIME on topics ranging from space to human behavior to climate to medicine. Along with others at TIME, Kluger won an Emmy nominee for the web series A Year in Space.


"[An] action-packed thriller of a novel."
-Time, "11 New Books You Should Read in August"

"Mr. Kluger knows all about the tech, having written books about Apollo 8, Apollo 13 and the whole space program, but it's his constant switching from Earth to orbit, from Houston to Moscow, from rainforest to Washington, D.C., that keeps the pot boiling. This is near-future sci-fi in the age of social media."
-The Wall Street Journal

"Holdout will keep you hanging on right up until the final pages as Kluger deftly manages to keep the high-octane thrills and the threat to the burning rainforest going all the way through to the dramatic finale."
-Book Reporter

"Just terrific...readers will be flipping the pages as fast as they can to find out what happens next."

"Kluger smoothly covers the technical aspects of life on the ISS and neatly contrasts international cooperation in space with conflict back on Earth. Readers who enjoyed Kluger's depiction of the Apollo 13 rescue effort will appreciate the reciprocity of a rescue of Earth from space."
-Publishers Weekly

"Interlacing high-stakes action with ethical urgency, Holdout is a large-hearted thriller whose reluctant heroine-the astronaut-turned-activist Walli Beckwith-reminds us that the least likely platforms can be used to spark change."
-Jessica Bruder, author of Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century

"Holdout is a beautiful, character-driven story that moves the reader seamlessly from the Amazon basin to the International Space Station. It is brilliant, both technically in its descriptions of an astronaut's mission, and as a literary tour de force that moves the human heart."
-Admiral James Stavridis USN, Supreme Allied Commander at NATO (2009-2013), coauthor of 2034: A Novel of the Next World War

"One of those rare books that is both a ripping good read and a parable for our times. Holdout doesn't shy away from the big questions. It is deeply imagined, morally complex, and stayed with me long after the last page."
-Elliot Ackerman, author of Dark at the Crossing, a National Book Award finalist, coauthor of 2034: A Novel of the Next World War
