Judges’ Comments
Breathtaking in scope yet detailed and intimate, this book is as close to perfect as it gets. The sprawling, fully immersive setting is a work of art, and the resolution is simultaneously bleak and uplifting. Kindness and justice sparkle in the face of overwhelming chaos and cruelty. An absolute triumph.
