Staff Reviews


This is utterly spectacular--as entertaining, engaging, smart, and funny as fiction gets. The plot is expansive, covering 45 years from the violent DNC of 1968 to the protests at the RNC in NYC in 2011. It's a novel about politics, trust and loyalty, and our ability to engage with the world even when it's tough. If you're a fan of Don DeLillo, Franzen, or even David Foster Wallace, you'll love this.

“Hill's debut is remarkable because it does both the little things and the big things right. It is an intimate novel of identity and loss, the story of a boy abandoned and the man now trying to recover. It also paints a vivid portrait of America and its politics from the 1960s to the present. The Nix overflows with unforgettable characters, but none more clearly rendered than Samuel Andersen-Anderson and his mother, Faye, both bewildered by life and struggling to repair the rift between them. From intimate whispers to American news cycles, this astounding novel of reclamation is guaranteed to sweep readers off their feet.”
