This is an auction for A CONSTELLATION OF VITAL PHENOMENA by Anthony Marra.

"All of the characters are closely tied together in ways that Marra takes his time revealing, even as he beautifully renders the way we long to connect and the lengths we will go to endure.
- a *** starred *** review in Booklist (US)

“Extraordinary....a 21st century War and Peace....”
- New York Times Book Review

“An authentic, heart-breaking tale of intertwining relationships during wartime....As he shifts in time through the years of the two Chechen wars, Marra confidently weaves those plots together, and several more besides, giving each character a rich backstory that intersects, often years down the line, with the others... The novel’s tone remains optimistic, and its characters retain vast depths of humanity (and even humour) in spite of their bleak circumstances.”
- a *** starred *** review in Library Journal (US)

"I haven’t been so overwhelmed by a novel in years. At the risk of raising your expectations too high, I have to say you simply must read this book.”
- Washington Post

“A complex debut... Marra writes with elegant details about the physical and emotional destruction of occupation and war.”
- a *** starred *** review in Publishers Weekly (US)
