"Seamlessly blending literary and genre traditions, Karolina Waclawiak never fails to surprise, delight, and reveal secrets that lesser writers keep hidden. I love her work, and I'm already waiting for the next book."--Sara Gran, author of "Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead " "A wonderfully fierce novel, from a brilliant and essential talent."--Laura van den Berg, author of "The Isle of Youth and Find Me " "A witty, vicious, and entirely moving portrait of privilege, alienation, and sexual invisibility set in a Connecticut beach community."--Kate Zambreno, author of "Green Girl " ..".my favorite kind of beach read, more messy ambiguity than Mai Tais."--Anna Andersen "The Toast " "How To Get Into the Twin Palms was a mini-masterpiece of atmosphere and mood; a new book is a cause for celebration."--Emily Gould, author of "Friendship " "The Invaders is an elegant, ominous book, a sharp, witty novel of manners of the most sinister kind. In Waclawiak's expert hands, this novel will have you holding your breath and your heart until the very last word."--Roxane Gay, author of "Bad Feminist and An Untamed State " "The Invaders is as crisp as they come, hilarious and alarming in equal measure. This book is a time bomb in madras shorts, ready for golf, sex, and natural disasters."--Emma Straub, author of "The Vacationers and Laura Lamont's Life in Pictures " "Karolina Waclawiak's The Invaders is the stiffest of literary drinks--it'll jolt your system, and make the world around you glow a little differently when you're done with it. Witty, dark, and honest, this novel tells the hard--but hilarious--truths about aging in America, dysfunctional relationships, and suburban vices."--Jami Attenberg, author of "The Middlesteins " "A blazing wonder of a novel . . . As whip-smart and cunning as it is poignant and mysterious, The Invaders demonstrates that Waclawiak's masterful debut novel, How to Get into the Twin Palms, was just the beginning."--Megan Abbott, author of "Dare Me " "The Invaders is a gut punch of a novel--a scathing look at privileged people trapped by their own choices, but unable to imagine an alternative to their misery. Karolina Waclawiak is a remarkable writer, able to channel the unflinching clarity of Richard Yates, the off-kilter tenderness of Cheever, and taut narrative energy of crime fiction in a voice that is all her own."--Tom Perrotta, author of "The Leftovers and Little Children "
