Praise for The Seventh Mansion

“Reading The Seventh Mansion feels like receiving a divine transmission from a burning bush—I was beguiled by Maryse Meijer’s brave and darting sentences and challenged by the questions raised.” –Catherine Lacey, author of Pew

“With astute empathy and tenderness, The Seventh Mansion brilliantly examines what it means to be human in a diminishing earthly world. Maryse Meijer’s exquisite prose captures the beauty and ache of longing, and the desperation to save ourselves and the world around us. In this slim and stunning novel, Meijer beautifully answers the burning human question of what we really need to survive. This is truly the perfect love story.” –Crissy Van Meter, author of Creatures

“Maryse Meijer’s The Seventh Mansion is one of the best books I’ve read in years. She makes the unholy holy, turns the grim dark into the blinding light. It is aflame with passion and I want to burn inside it forever.” –Daniel Kraus, coauthor of The Shape of Water and author of The Death and Life of Zebulon Finch

Maryse Meijer is the author of the story collections Heartbreaker, which was one of Electric Literature’s 25 Best Short Story Collections of 2016, and Rag, which was a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Pick and a finalist for the Chicago Review of Books Award for Fiction, as well as the novella Northwood.
