Reviews

  • "A short, sharp explosion of a gothic thriller whose tension ratchets up and up to an ending of extraordinary lyricism and virtuosity."

    Observer *Fiction to Look Out for in 2020*
  • "This is a book that makes you remember why you first fell in love with reading. I was haunted by it. Utterly unique."

    Evie Wyld, author of The Bass Rock
  • "A blistering read. An exquisitely rendered exploration of sibling love and rivalry that rattles the core."

    Irenosen Okojie, author of Nudibranch
  • "Sisters has a hot, dark energy that thrums beneath the language like blood. Daisy Johnson’s portrayal of female relationships is sticky, close and true. It will seep into your skin and linger in your bones."

    Jessica Andrews, author of Saltwater
  • "Johnson’s Sisters is haunted in the fullest sense; its very sentences governed by a sinister, spectral force. This is a novel we don’t so much read as wade through with our hands outstretched and our eyes clamped shut, holding our breath 'til morning. "

    Sue Rainsford, author of Follow Me to the Ground
  • "Sisters is brilliant. Bold and tender. There is a physicality to its spell, muttered sometimes, sometimes screamed: we can empty of ourselves and become an object, while objects can flush with life. Daisy Johnson is a profound writer."

    Cynan Jones, author of The Dig
  • "A beautiful, burning, disquieting marvel."

    Megan Hunter, author of The Harpy
  • "A taut, disturbing, and brilliantly written psychological drama of the first order. You'll read for the quality of the prose, but also the amazing depth of characterization and mystery. Another great book from one of our finest writers."

    Jeff VanderMeer, author of Annihilation
  • "Daisy Johnson is an enchantress who can turn the day into night and back again in a sentence. I love her prose so much, and this book was the sibling love-and-horror story of my dreams and nightmares. "

    Karen Russell, author of Orange World
