It’s Friday and we are over at Kirkus!
Today, Ana reviews an extraordinary novel: The Sunlight Pilgrims by Jenni Fagan
A sneak peek of the review:
A painfully beautiful story of the apocalypse, it would be easy to dismiss The Sunlight Pilgrims as a novel where “nothing happens” given its episodic nature. That’s only true if you think of life as “nothing”: there is nothing little about this novel, nothing unimportant within its pages. From Stella’s wary yet hopeful outlook, Constance’s unapologetic stance, and Dylan’s big heart, this novel is populated with humane, realistic, lovingly portrayed characters against an increasingly scary backdrop.
