Katie Kitamura: A Separation

The Ivy Bookshop

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.

Katie Kitamura is the author of Gone to the Forest and The Longshot, both of which were finalists for the New York Public Library’s Young Lions Fiction Award. A recipient of a Lannan Residency Fellowship, Kitamura has written for The New York TimesThe GuardianGranta, BOMB, Triple Canopy and is a regular contributor to Frieze. She lives in New York City.
