“By turns brutal, funny, and tender . . . During what are arguably our own Terrible Years, with truth and justice blurred nearly every day, Those Who Knew is as urgent as a ticking time bomb.”
—O, The Oprah Magazine

“There’s timely and then there’s timely . In this prescient novel, a powerful, corrupt senator may finally atone for his crimes when a woman close to him winds up dead. But who can bring him down?”
—Entertainment Weekly

“Novey—a poet and translator as well as a novelist—is a skillful wordsmith with descriptions that are poetic yet never overwrought . . . Those Who Knew is not only an important book about silence and its consequences, but also a sheer pleasure to read.”
—The Washington Post

“A fitting parable for the way many among us have been forced to grapple with revelations that the people we respect and admire might be guilty of ugly acts . . . Written in sharp prose, Those Who Knew keys into a prime lesson from our cultural reckoning with exploitation and abuse . . . Relevant and engrossing, this is a page-turning drama that tackles an essential moral dilemma.”

“The explosive novel everyone should be reading this fall.”
—New York Observer

“A bold and timely novel.”
