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 that will connect her with people from the past and future. Among them are a group of workers 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
