“Science-fiction fans will luxuriate in the dystopian madness, while even nonfans will find an artful critique of humanity’s ability to cooperate in the face of a greater threat.” —Kirkus Reviews

Kress has proven that she can pack a huge amount of story into a small container (as with 2013’s title After the Fall Before the Fall, During the Fall), and here the author expertly explores one family’s experience of alien visitation.” —Library Journal

“Nancy Kress has always written stories as accessible to the novice as to the seasoned fan, and "Yesterday's Kin" gets my vote as this summer's most inviting introduction to science fiction for new readers.” —Gary K. Wolfe, Chicago Tribune
