Reviews

"[A]n extraordinary metaphysical thriller from one of America's most inventive novelists." -- Laura Miller - Slate
"A rare pleasure to read... Millet's fine prose [is] as rich with fresh imagery as it is open-minded to life's hidden possibilities." -- Matthew Gilbert - The Boston Globe
"Lydia Millet is not as popular as she should be. This novel will change that...Her ambitious new novel, Sweet Lamb of Heaven, is part fast-paced thriller, part quiet meditation on the nature of God." -- Lisa Zeidner - Washington Post
"Millet's sense of pacing is acute and her prose is glittering and exact." -- New Yorker
"[A] hypnotic novel of psychological and philosophical suspense." -- O Magazine
"[A]ddictive, unsettling... sneaks in some high-minded themes (the nature of reality, the fragility of human connection) without distracting one iota from the suspense. A winner." -- People
"[A] novel so eerie, so chilling and provocative, that you might find yourself rethinking everything you thought you knew about language, belief, and where our human race might be going." -- Caroline Leavitt - San Francisco Chronicle
"[P]repare to be surprised by more than plot twists. . . . the Pulitzer finalist's philosophical fireworks add layers of energy and mystery." -- Boris Katchka - Vulture
"Millet evinces a rare capacity to surprise and fascinate readers... Unpredictable in the best sense, Millet's eye-opening stories and conceptions are irresistibly interesting. This may be her most beguiling and accessible creation yet." -- David Wright - The Seattle Times
"A peculiar, stirring thriller. . . . Millet has a knack for planting plainspoken, world-weary narrators in otherworldly circumstances, and Anna is one of her sharpest, most intriguingly philosophical creations." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Millet weaves a satisfying cat and mouse game... Her novel reads like top-notch psychological suspense...This is a page-turner from a very talented writer, and the result is a crowd-pleaser." -- Publishers Weekly
"Operating, as always, on multiple levels with artistic panache, emotional precision, and profound intent, Millet transforms a violent family conflict into a war of cosmic proportions over nothing less than life itself." -- Donna Seaman - Booklist
