An exquisitely moving novel of sorrow, love, and the miracle of human connections. * Kamila Shamsie, author of 'Home Fire' *
A dazzling, psychologically astute, scientifically engaged novel about love, loss, and the mysteries of the mind... Block dares to ask some of the most profound questions of what it means to be alive. * David Ebershoff, author of 'The Danish Girl' *
Stefan Block's profound novel, Oliver Loving, is intricately constructed and rich with devastating, gorgeous prose. * Jami Attenberg, New York Times bestselling author of 'The Middlesteins and All Grown Up' *
Haunting, bittersweet, addictive. * J. Courtney Sullivan, author of 'Maine' *
Oliver Loving is an extraordinary novel about family and community, told with real heart and humour and style. Stefan Merrill Block has the rare ability to capture, in his literature, the secrets we store in silence - the pages of a life that are rarely read aloud. * Jonathan Lee, author of 'High Dive' *
The last book that made me cry: Stefan Merrill Block's Oliver Loving. Its subject matter - a young man in a coma after a school shooting, and the repercussions for his family - lends itself to tears, but the novel's real accomplishment is to avoid pulling heartstrings. * Guardian *
A haunting, imaginative, and deeply poignant story by one of America's great wordsmiths. I love this wise, probing and beautiful novel. * Steve Toltz, author of the Man Booker shortlisted 'A Fraction of the Whole' *
In elegant and beautiful prose, Block describes how Oliver's family splits apart after his shooting. * Psychologies *
