Waterstones Says

A breathtaking feat of literary collaboration, Fourteen Days is a spellbinding, Decameronesque novel set in an Lower East Side apartment building at the beginning of the pandemic, with each of its characters written by a different author from a star-studded cast of contributors including Margaret Atwood, Dave Eggers and Celeste Ng.

Set in a Lower East Side tenement in the early days of the pandemic, Fourteen Days is a dazzling, heartwarming novel with an unusual twist: each character has been secretly written by a different, major literary voice - from Margaret Atwood and Douglas Preston to Dave Eggers and Celeste Ng.

One week into the COVID-19 shutdown, tenants of a Lower East Side apartment building in Manhattan have begun to gather on the rooftop and tell stories. With each passing night, more and more neighbours gather, bringing chairs and milk crates and overturned pails. Gradually the tenants - some of whom have barely spoken to each other - become real neighbours.

In this Decameron-like serial novel, general editor Margaret Atwood, Authors Guild president Douglas Preston, and a star-studded list of contributors create a beautiful ode to the people who couldn't get away from the city when the pandemic hit. A dazzling, heartwarming collection, Fourteen Days reveals how beneath the loss and suffering, some communities managed to become stronger.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Fourteen Days serves as a valuable reminder that stories can teach, console, provide a place of acceptance and perhaps even change their readers (or listeners) - Financial Times

If you want to feel well read in double-quick time, try Fourteen Days, which is set in a New York city tenement in the early days of the pandemic. It has a novel twist (pardon the pun) - each character has been secretly written by a different author from Margaret Atwood and John Grisham to Dave Eggers and Celeste Ng - BBC

While we're really not in a rush to think about the pandemic again, we'll make an exception for Margaret Atwood. Fourteen Days is a collaborative novel edited by Atwood and Douglas Preston, and includes writing from Celeste NG and John Grisham, amongst others. In the novel, the inhabitants of a Manhattan apartment block gather on the roof and tell stories, as more neighbours join people start to form real bonds - Cosmopolitan

Reading Fourteen Days is like sitting by a campfire, with characters taking turns telling tales about their lives - Economist

A heart-warming and surprising narrative, Fourteen Days is an ode to the power of storytelling and human connection - SheerLuxe

“Tales From Before And During”

This was a really odd one, as with most short stories collections, there’s a couple of stories that aren’t for me. But the overall story arc, the characters and the concept is brilliant and really interesting.
