"Excellent on so many things. . . . There is a hugely empathetic imagination behind this novel."
—The New York Times
"Provocative. . . . Jungersen's sharp, disturbing book reminds us that evil is everywhere, and while you can track it down, you can't stamp it out. Especially if it lives within you.”
"Extraordinary. . . . Aside from being a suspenseful page-turner, The Exception challenges our complacency and self-regard at every turn. . . . The personal has never seemed more political.”
—The Minneapolis Star-Tribune
“Plenty of books promise to change their readers' lives. Few succeed. Christian Jungersen's The Exception is truly an exception. . . . A highly original psychological thriller.”
