Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you’re looking for a poetic, spare, sometimes funny tale of ordinary people pining for meaningful connections—or if you’re someone who wishes Raymond Carver had published a novel—you have arrived.”The New York Times Book Review

“In this innovative and deeply moving debut, Regina Porter has mastered the kind of alchemy found in a great painting by Poussin: her canvas is vast, her subject ambitious, yet her execution is so brilliantly devoted to particulars that it creates a miraculous intimacy. The beauty of this book lies in how Porter’s characters, through resilience and community, art and creative love, cut new doors out of the corners they’ve been backed into by history.”
—Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You

“Porter’s fantastic debut novel is a whirl of characters spidering outward through time and space. . . . Beautifully written and intricately plotted.”
Kirkus Reviews

The Travelers is unlike anything I’ve ever read. Regina Porter masterfully and imaginatively charts the intersecting lives of these characters, revealing how connected we are not only to the ones we love, but also those we encounter in passing—how we form and are formed by one another in ways entirely unknown to us. Each character’s perspective is rendered with such intimacy and spirit that it is a jarring pleasure to encounter them again through the eyes of their children or lovers, illuminating just how little we know of the fullness of the inner lives of our loved ones, or of the legacies we inherit.”—Fatima Farheen Mirza, author of A Place for Us

“In 
The Travelers, generations of two families—one black and one white—journey across time, race, geography, and the wounds of history with sweeping breadth and disarming intimacy. Porter’s debut signals the arrival of a fully formed, singular talent. You’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time; it's just that Porter hadn’t written it yet.”—Ayana Mathis, author of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie

The Travelers is a great, grand tabernacle of a novel, under the roof of which it seems the entire history of the United States and all its people has been gathered into a single blazing congregation. It is full of tales tall and short, lives black, white, and every shade between, from the north, south, east, and west. None but the biggest-hearted, sharpest-eyed, most generous-spirited of writers could pull off a book like this. Regina Porter is some kind of visionary.”—Paul Harding, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Tinkers

“Regina Porter’s 
The Travelers is not only the compelling intergenerational saga of two intertwining families, but also a deadpan and mordant chronicle of twentieth-century America’s casual intolerance and racial violence, as well as a series of portraits of intrepid women, a celebration of family responsibility, and an impassioned reminder that we most honor those we loved by continuing to love others.”—Jim Shepard, National Book Award–shortlisted author of Like You’d Understand, Anyway    

The Travelers is a thrillingly ambitious, deeply affecting event. Regina Porter has a great ear and a capacious heart. Her dialogue presses us to the very souls of her many fabulous and fascinating characters, and her understanding of human emotion makes one want to linger at every step of this grand journey. There is so much offered here—race, history, love, loss, and family, just to name a few—that this debut novel should be considered nothing less than a supreme act of generosity.”—Jamel Brinkley, National Book Award–shortlisted author of A Lucky Man
