Reviews, News & Interviews:
Nothing like any book you've ever read ... Think of discovering an entirely unprecedented, and profoundly true, narrative form. Think about feeling that the very idea of the novel, of what it can be and what it's capable of containing, has been expanded, forever ... All I can really tell you is, read McCann's book. It's an important book. Michael Cunningham
Now you have to read Apeirogon ... Delirious and thrilling, spectacular. Sunday Times
An apeirogon is a shape with a countably infinite number of sides – and Colum McCann's transcendent book is full of hundreds of thought-provoking, emotional segments … McCann turns these haunting true stories into engrossing fiction, and he does so with poetic power. independent.co.uk
In the spirit of Picasso's Guernica, Apeirogon reminds us that such incandescent art evokes humility and light in the face of oppression and loss. O Magazine
Powerful novel about the shared grief of a Palestinian and Israeli. Sunday Times
