Praise for Until We Fall
“Fans of dystopian fiction will be pleased with the terrifying similarity of Zelniker’s world and ours—like a fun-house mirror, this novel shows us an image that is both disturbing and recognizable as what our nation would look like if fascism and conservatism prevailed.” — Sadie Hoagland, author of Strange Children and American Grief in Four Stages
“An impactful story of what could be that will shake you to your core, told in a powerful voice.” — Nathan Caro Fréchette, author of Blood Relations
“Both tender and gripping, Until We Fall is a propulsive tale of revolution and community in the tradition of Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower. It serves as a powerful reminder of how quickly freedom can disappear—and how central love is to the work of winning it back.” — Johanna Stoberock, author of Pigs and City of Ghosts
