The People of Forever Are Not Afraid Reviews
"[An] impressive debut." - Publishers Weekly
"Not for the squeamish. Readers will either embrace the complexity of the writing or become maddeningly lost as the author meanders through a hot, dry country devoid of tenderness." - Kirkus Reviews
"Shani Boianjiu has found a way to expose the effects of war and national doctrine on the lives of young Israelis. So her subject is serious, but lest I make her work sound in any way heavy let me point out how funny she is, how disarming and full of life. Even when she is writing about death, Boianjiu is more full of life than any young writer I've come across in a long time." - Nicole Krauss, author of Great House and The History of Love
"The term 'a distinct new voice in literature' had became a cliché long before Shani Boianjiu was born, but there is no better way to describe her unique piercing tone. Reading it feels like having your heart sawn in to two by a very dull knife. The People of Forever are Not Afraid is one of those rare books that truly make you want to cry but at the same time doesnt allow you to." - Etgar Keret, author of The Nimrod Flipout
"If anyone ever tells you the novel is dead, don't say anything, just give them this book. Shani Boianjiu is an enormous new talent. This is one of the boldest debuts I can think of - it reads like it was written in bullets, tear gas, road flares and love. I demand another book from her, immediately." - Alexander Chee, author of Edinburgh
