Reviews

"An American author steps out of the shadows with a dystopian novel of great power." -- Adam Begley - The Sunday Times
"The pandemic amplifies the resonance of this brilliant end-of-days escapade... if the conclusion doesn't leave you with goosebumps, then you should probably check your pulse." -- Stephanie Cross - The Daily Mail
"New England children caught up in an apocalyptic storm have to fend for themselves in this powerful novel by a talented American writer who has often flown under the literary radar." -- 100 best holiday reads - The Sunday Times
"Here's an idea: As the world falls apart all around us, why not read a book about the world falling apart in a totally different way? Not just any book, though, it kind of has to be A Children's Bible, the brilliant Lydia Millet's latest, in which the oblivious destructiveness of a certain self-indulgent generation of adults is rightfully skewered, as a new generation of hyper-mature teens must figure out how to live without any concrete kind of guidance." -- Best Books of 2020, So Far - Refinery29
"A perfect novel for now." -- Metro
"A Children's Bible... begins in a crumbling mansion where a group of bored, surly, privileged teens are spending the summer sequestered with their ne'er do well parents. Just as it begins to seem like a summer teen romp, the story takes a dramatic turn in the shape of a cataclysmic storm. What follows is brilliant-and feels both inevitable and strangely magical. How those teens tell the story, which transforms this climate emergency into a brutally honest, funny and moving indictment of the generations leaving a broken world for them to inherit, is especially refreshing." -- Diane Cook, The Best Books of 2020 - Evening Standard
"This superb novel begins as a generational comedy - a pack of kids and their middle-aged parents coexist in a summer share - and turns steadily darker, as climate collapse and societal breakdown encroach. But Millet's light touch never falters; in this time of great upheaval, she implies, our foundational myths take on new meaning and hope." -- 100 Notable Books of 2020 - The New York Times Book Review
"... in A Children's Bible, Lydia Millet maps the consequences of an environmental apocalypse with unnerving, fable-like simplicity." -- The Best Novels of 2020 - The Telegraph
