"From the visionary author of The Book of Joan and The Small Backs of Children, an epic novel tracing the conception and construction of a colossal statue-and the lives of two centuries of immigrants navigating its turbulent wake "Lidia Yuknavitch is a writer who, with each ever more triumphant book, creates a new language with which she writes the audacious stories only she can tell," Roxane Gay has written. Now, Yuknavitch bridges the nineteenth and late twenty-first centuries with an imaginative masterpiece: the story of the life and afterlife of a national monument to liberty, as told through the lives of those who built it and those who struggle to survive in its imperfect shadow. Through three braided storylines, we follow the sculptor Frdric and his firebrand American lover, Aurora; Mikael, an Eastern European orphan locked in an American prison, and Lilly, a case worker trying to save him; and the construction worker Aster and his daughter Laisv?, a "carrier" with a gift of using ancient waterways to swim through time. As the dream Frdric conceived-and Aster helped build-founders under rising seas, Laisv? must dodge enforcement raids and find her way back to Lilly and then, finally, to Aurora, to forge a connection that might save their fractured dream of freedom"--… (mere)

Time-travelling meditation on the Statue of Liberty. More fantasy than sf, and more importantly it doesn’t quite stick the landing. ( )

That cover! Cover of the year? Maybe. I would say, the cover certainly catches the spirit of the words/plot/characters. I only wish the words inside were as amazing as that cover. It was a bit tough for me to see what the writer was trying to do here -- I think many nice ideas that didn't really tie together or make sense. Almost a fever dream... or many different fever dreams mixed together. It's also like a cli-fi book, but from what was here it was like the prologue of a cli-fi book. A hint of interesting world building that I would have liked to see more of. Maybe I'm just not understanding this one, and it's too smart for this reader to understand, but I wish I liked it more than I did. I will say I read this one especially scatterbrained, which probably didn't help. ( )

This is a glorious fever dream of a book, with the narrative moving back and forth in time, the point of view jumping from character to character, with many fantastical elements and simply surreal occurrences. This sort of loose and meandering structure is hard to pull off, but when it works, it really works, and it boy, does it here. I found myself confused much of the time, especially in the early going, but I also found myself pulled along, both by the lovely writing and the empathetically-drawn characters, but also by a certain propulsiveness to the story-telling. This is definitely a book that could stand up to, and be improved by, a second or third reading. There's just so much going on, so many themes explored, so many sharp observations and distinctive quotes, so much inventiveness. I read this as an audiobook (and the cast of narrators is excellent), but I think consuming this as the written word would be even better, where I could more easily pause and savor every delightful turn of phrase or clever bit of writing. Highly recommended! ( )
