A brilliant novel about the end of a marriage from a luminous young talent
A novel so seamless, that follows its path with such consequence, that even minor deviations seem loaded with meaning. Wonderful.
A Separation is riveting, unsettling and beautifully written. Katie Kitamura really is the business.
Consider Katie Kitamura a literary heavyweight in the making.
Kitamura's protagonist is a smart, accomplished, contemporary version of that ancient literary figure, the unreliable narrator ... A Separation leaves you intrigued, impressed
Gripping ... the precision of Kitamura's prose is nothing short of extraordinary. She writes with a piercing clarity picking apart the detail of her characters' emotions and actions with the meticulousness of a forensic expert analysing a crime scene, or a medical examiner conducting an autopsy ... There's so much to admire here; such delight to be taken in the composition of these clauses, the way in which they allow one to visualise the pace of the underlying though processes. Not to mention the fact that Kitamura's astonishing decision to elucidate instincts and impulses-not least to first describe, then identity-is inspired ... She fearlessly strips back façades and plunges depths, as a result of which A Separation is a beautifully written powerhouse of a novel that defies all expectations.
