Praise for High Nissenson's The Days of Awe:
"I just finished The Days of Awe. I am too moved to move. (Even this pen.) An amazing novel. It is as if we are eavesdropping on life."
"If you believe the best novels should be transformative, should rip the dusty curtains from our everyday vision; if you don't mind being terrorized by a narrative, then you'll be looking at a different world when you finish these pages."
Carolyn See, Washington Post
"A deep affirmation of life in all its mystery and agony and joy."
Frederick M. Dolan, author of Allegories of America
"Nissenson's haunting, deeply moral novel asks the largest questions, and with tough lyric elegance, illuminates the smallest moments. The Days of Awe is a Great Awakening elegy for all our lives even as we live them."
Johanna Kaplan, author of 0 My America
"A Masterpiece "
Amos Elon, author of The Pity of It All
