Strangers with the Same Dream
In her long-awaited novel, her first since the Man Booker–nominated Far to Go, Alison Pick takes us to a lost time and place that still vividly haunts our present day. Writing with exquisite control, Pick leads us inside the minds and hearts of three extraordinary, awed and very human characters to show us exactly how, in the crucible of a would-be utopia, the unthinkable happens.
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR STRANGERS WITH THE SAME DREAM
Stunning. On one level, a fascinating novel about early kibbutz life. More deeply, this is thought-provoking fiction that asks important questions about idealism, privacy, equality, power, corruption and war.
--Miriam Toews, author of All My Puny Sorrows
Strangers with the Same Dream explores the dark side of utopian longing with terrific sensitivity, intelligence, and attention to beauty. Alison Pick is one of the wisest and most compassionate of writers.
--Lauren Groff, author of Fates and Furies
A riveting, timely novel that takes an essential moment in history and allows it to blaze into being in all its strange and glorious complexity. Alison Pick has a way of reinventing the novel again and again.
--Jenny Offill, author of Dept. of Speculation
