Laisve is a refugee in a destroyed city-island, hunted in Raids and haunted by the spirits of her drowned mother and brother. She dives into the river and finds herself travelling between times and waterways in a race to rescue the future - and past - of other lost children.

A Lenape Nation iron-walker, a Dominican nun, a scarred acrobat and a piebald man are risking their lives constructing a colossal monument to freedom for a young and bustling nation. But exactly what - and whom - will that liberty represent?

As Laisve drifts into their histories, she schools seekers in the ways of dreams, love and the ultimate aim of liberty - to free the next generation from the chains of this one.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A long, disturbing dream . . . a fascinating, unsettling ride - Guardian

There's so much that feels deeply present about Yuknavitch's latest novel: the ever-expanding police state, lower Manhattan under water and a woman on a mission to rescue other vulnerable women. Yuknavitch's words are incantations, and Thrust is a triumph - Elle

An indignant and impressive novel - New York Times

Moving and incisive - Time

This weirdly wonderful [novel] on the surveillance state, climate change, and what it means to have agency as a woman in the world will throw your mind for a loop in the best way - Good Housekeeping

[This] powerful, braided fable unites workers of the world across time and space and class to start conceiving of a better world . . . Yuknavitch is firmly in control - Los Angeles Times

Thrust is alarmingly trenchant - and a hell of a wild ride. Daring, dazzling and earth-splitting, this is a book to take in wide-eyed - REBECCA MAKKAI, author of The Great Believers

[The] most mind-blowing book about America I've ever inhaled . . . I read Thrust in a state of flustered fascination and finished longing to dream it again - Washington Post

A unique dystopian tale, one much more than a straightforward calamity-charged premonition - Buzz Magazine

A complex novel of great imagination . . . profound, thought-provoking and deeply beautiful - Shelf Awareness
