Long, "The Plain Dealer" (Cleveland) ""Purge" is that very rare thing, a sheer masterpiece . . . A marvel . . . I hope that everyone in the world who knows how to read, reads Purge."--Nancy Huston, author of "Fault Lines " "Oksanen's fluid, unadorned prose gives shape to unspeakable violence and illuminates the process of remembering."--"The L Magazine "(Top 10 Books of 2010) "A captivating book about two women with dark secrets and an underlying connection. . . . Oksanen skillfully weaves histories together to form a rich, complex nove."--Shelf Awareness
