June 1st, 2011

Kate Christensen’s new novel, The Astral, on sale later this month, is topping summer ‘must-read’ lists everywhere including The Atlantic, Christian Science Monitor, New York Press, St. Louis Today, CBS Houston, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, CBS Miami, Bookpage, New York Daily News and The Wall Street Journal.

“Like the rapidly gentrifying Brooklyn of its setting, Christensen’s unremittingly wonderful latest is populated by an odd but captivating mix of characters. Christensen takes a singular, genuine story and blows it up into a smart inquiry into the nature of love and the commitments we make, the promises we do and do not honor, and the people we become as we negotiate the treacherous parameters of marriage and friendship and parenthood.” —Publisher’s Weekly (starred)
