“The only real magic here is Benjamin’s storytelling….Poignant…A testimony of love.”—The Washington Post

“[An] amazing work of fiction…A dense, yet beautifully spun and satisfying tale that spans 50 years…Spare, yet gorgeously robust prose…and every page is imbued with [Benjamin’s] obvious storytelling skill….Begin 2018 with the book that could easily retain the year’s top spot, The Immortalists is a can’t-put-down, makes-you-think tale of a not-so-average American family.”—Associated Press
