Told in exquisite prose, with intoxicating emotional velocity, A Separation tells the story of a marriage’s end, the gulf that divides us from the inner lives of others and the narratives we invent to mask our true selves. The novel evokes the psychologically taut atmosphere of a Patricia Highsmith story with the spellbinding stylings of an Elena Ferrante, while its watchful examination of the intimacies and betrayals of a marriage conjures Lauren Groff. And yet, there’s “a sweet coldness here that is all Kitamura’s” (Financial Times). A Separation is a riveting stylistic masterpiece of absence and presence, secrets and lies, that leaves the reader transformed.
