Editorial Reviews

Review

“Readers willing to brave the darkness will find a worthy, nuanced portrait of a woman’s struggle for self-determination amid mental illness.” -- Publisher's Weekly

“A gripping, tender, and unsettling look at mental illness... Poetic and understated, this nuanced work by Buchanan also addresses adult-child relationships, the legacy of family trauma, and the challenge of offering unconditional love...Complex and resonant.”   -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Starling Days is unlike anything I’ve ever read. Both quiet and scorching, this is a story about mental health, desire, and the myriad mythologies we both build and destroy. Rowan Hisayo Buchanan has offered us another supreme gift of a novel, a rare opportunity to love and forgive our darkest and most shimmering selves.” -- T. Kira Madden ― author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls

Starling Days a beautiful and profoundly moving “floor plan” of what it means to live with depression and dailiness, love and death, solitude and connection.” -- Elaine Castillo ― author of America Is Not the Heart

“A singular novel from the poetic and painterly mind of Rowan Hisayo Buchanan.” -- Sharlene Teo ― author of Ponti

“A quiet triumph—tenderly and disarmingly exploring the responsibility of love, loneliness, what it is to feel lost.” -- Sophie Mackintosh ― author of The Water Cure

“The gifted Rowan Hisayo Buchanan follows her marvelous debut with Starling Days... portraying complex character and tangled interpersonal relations with striking maturity.” -- Financial Times

“An exquisite rendering of love, sadness, and misunderstanding...I want to share this book with everyone I know.” -- Spencer Quong ― Paris Review, most anticipated titles of 2020

“Everyone could use a change of scenery — and nobody more than Oscar and Mina, a married couple who leave New York for London after Mina's second suicide attempt. But a trek across the pond can't keep some old baggage away.” -- Entertainment Weekly

“Buchanan’s second novel tenderly explores mental illness, bisexuality, connection, love and loss. This is an original, poetic and striking literary triumph." -- Ms. Magazine --This text refers to the paperback edition.
