‘The Measure is a fantastic first outing for Nikki Erlick. […] It’s a timely, page-turning triumph and I can’t recommend it enough’ LoveReading ‘A sharp lens for real-world problems’ Daily Mail ‘Perfect for book clubs… equal parts charming and thought-provoking. It takes a philosophical question – what if everybody on earth knew exactly how long they had left to live? – and explores, with compassion and pragmatism, how the implications would trickle down into… modern life, from politics to intimacy’ Marie Claire ‘Utterly original and wonderfully mysterious. Through Erlick's deft prose and clever logic, I threw away all disbelief and fully plunged into the unsettling but life-affirming world she creates’ Jessica Anya Blau, author of Mary Jane ‘The Measure is exactly what our world needs right now’ Christina Dalcher, bestselling author of Vox ‘[a] hugely compelling story, which drew me in from the very first page with its beautiful writing. Weeks after reading it, I'm still thinking about this smart, uplifting novel and its wonderful characters’ Freya Sampson, author of The Last Chance Library ‘The Measure has a strong emotional heart with an array of characters exploring their frightening, but sometimes beautiful new worlds. Ultimately, [it] is about the power of human resilience’ Luke Allnutt, author of We Own the Sky ‘A brilliant concept cleverly executed. I couldn’t stop reading’ Christina Sweeney-Baird, author of The End of Men ‘What an incredible book! … beautifully executed’ Ruth Hogan, author of The Keeper of Lost Things ‘A compelling, heart-breaking story of life and love with a perfect, elegant premise’ Bridget Collins, bestselling author of The Binding
