Praise for Before All the World:

"Before All the World startles and swirls, and makes fresh the experience of language itself. It has it all: a gripping story, an original structure, and a tender, ghostly glow."
— Justin Torres, author of We the Animals
"Before All the World is beautiful and original. It is also strange, arresting, high-risk. Very quickly this novel starts to work on the mind, making itself felt in complex and powerful and visionary ways, led by the rhythm in the language and the urge to make that language new."
— Colm Tóibín, author of The Magician
"Evocative, inventive, vivid, and strange, Before All the World is a mesmeric, enrapturing read."
— Eimear McBride, author of Strange Hotel
