The World Without You: “A Painful But Necessary Transformation”


If you enjoyed our interview with Joshua Henkin, may we direct you to this review of The World Without You, featured in The New York Times Sunday Book Review.

“Henkin’s prose is elegant but unobtrusive, always serving the characters. Although the cast is large, you get to know them deeply, like real people, and while they’re not all easy to like, neither are the members of any family. They want to be drawn together by their loss, and don’t know how to be.”

The perfect motivation for that weekend book purchase. You’re welcome.
