the spine-chilling action begins on the first page and doesn’t let up until the last.

The story takes a little while to get started. There’s a lot of backstory to set up, but it’s all important to provide a picture of the political and economic climate of Havana during those years. Hunter obviously did his research well and enjoyed the subject matter.

In a recent New Yorker essay, Saunders wrote that “literature is a form of fondness-for-life. It is love for life taking verbal form,” and this love suffuses Lincoln in the Bardo. This is a novel that’s so intimate and human, so profound, that it seems like an act of grace.

They are all good stories with interesting characters, engaging plots, suspense, and interest-holding events.
