Erpenbeck’s prose, intense and fluent, is luminously translated by Susan Bernofsky.

—James Wood, The New Yorker

Erpenbeck’s metaphysical fictions are strange and beautiful, stern and compelling. This devastating work is as light as a dream and as unrelenting as real life. […] No reader can feel untouched by Erpenbeck’s inspired, and inspiring, vision.

—Eileen Battersby, The Irish Times

This slim novel packs a mighty punch and richly deserves its numerous accolades.

—Lucy Popescu, The Huffington Post

The End of Days is a brilliant study of loss and mourning. … Erpenbeck’s novel chronicles the twentieth century in a way that other Familienromane do not.

—Necia Chronister, World Literature Today

Erpenbeck will get under your skin.

Washington Post Book World

One of the most significant German-language novelists of her generation, Erpenbeck follows up the celebrated novel Visitation with a heady conceit located somewhere between Cloud Atlas and Groundhog Day

The Millions

Erpenbeck’s writing is a lure that leads us–off-centre, as into a vortex–into the most haunted and haunting territory.

—Anne Michaels

Dreamlike, almost incantatory prose.

Vogue

The brutality of her subjects, combined with the fierce intelligence and tenderness at work behind her restrained, unvarnished prose, is overwhelming.

—Nicole Krauss

A true miniaturist.

—Jenny Hendrix, Bookforum

Visitation adds to her compact scenarios something intangible and enormous, which works on them from outside their modest frames with a force eroding human history and its claims to establish durable meaning.
