Staff Reviews


Dark, masterful writing in this debut novel set in war-ravaged Chechnya. Raw, intimate characters unfold in a powerful story of family, love and fate. I savored every word.

— Jamie

May 2013 Indie Next List


“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.”
