New from Liz Moore: The Unseen World. The New York Times calls it "fiercely intelligent," The Boston Globe calls it a "captivating new page-turner," and The Washington Post calls it "a cerebral, page-turning thriller" that is "an elegant and ethereal novel about identity and the dawn of artificial intelligence, and a convincing interior portrait of a young woman."

Liz Moore is the author of the novels THE WORDS OF EVERY SONG (Broadway Books, 2007), HEFT (W.W. Norton, 2012), and THE UNSEEN WORLD (W.W. Norton, 2016). A winner of the 2014 Rome Prize in Literature, she lives in Philadelphia and teaches at Holy Family University.

End-of-year thanks

Just a note to say:

Thank you, wonderful Goodreads community, for your support of The Unseen World and my other books as well. It's been so nice to hear from you and get to know some of you.

I hope you find some time to relax amidst the end-of-year chaos.

As for me: I'm hard at work on my next project, and I can't wait to share it soon.

Best wishes, Happy New Year, goodbye 2017.

“I had ways of consoling myself. Yes, there was food but there was beyond food, this idea I had of an oversoul of loneliness. A connectedness among the world's lonely that I could turn to when I was very low. There was a delicious romance in being utterly alone, & I told myself I was nobler for it, & that there was a purpose to my solitude, O there must be.”
Liz Moore

“We talk for a very long time and I ask her if it gets easier and she says not really, just different. A different duller kind of hurt, the kind that doesn't surprise you anymore.
I ask what her parent were like when it happened and she says they have never been the same.”
Liz Moore, Heft

“But non sequiturs abounded in ELIXIR’s patter for years after its creation, and its syntax was often incomprehensible, and its deployment of idioms was almost always incorrect. Metaphors were lost on it. It could not comprehend analogies. Sensory descriptions, the use of figurative language to describe a particular aspect of human existence, were far beyond its ken. The interpretation of a poem or a passage of descriptive prose would have been too much to ask of it. These skills—the ability to understand and paraphrase Keats’s idea of beauty as truth, or argue against Schopenhauer’s idea that the human being is forever subject to her own base instinct to survive, or explain any one of Nabokov’s”
Liz Moore, The Unseen World
