Staff Reviews


I've never before read a book set in Chechnya and I've rarely met characters that seem more real.  The language is beautiful, the plot and characters are masterfully intertwined.  In spite of being set during the harsh realities of war there is humor.  You know how you yearn for that book that you simply love?  This is a book I loved and will remember for a long, long time.

“In A CONSTELLATION OF VITAL PHENOMENA, Anthony Marra expertly balances the pain and suffering inflicted during the Chechen conflict with exquisite moments of loyalty, sacrifice, humility and enduring love. Marra intricately connects the lives of eight unforgettable characters in wholly unexpected ways, slowly revealing their collective past, present and future. But as their breathtaking stories compel you forward, slow down and savor the vivid imagery and lyrical prose on each and every page. Aptly named, Marra's debut is indeed phenomenal.”
