“The Measures Between Us connects disparate characters . . . in a kaleidoscopic fashion. The refractions of these tangential relationships make for a novel that surprises and that illuminates the bonds of common experience. This deeply affecting debut novel is full of hope.” Chicago Tribune (Editors' Choice)
“Hauser relies on beautiful prose and sensitive characterization instead of easy gimmicks . . . A-.” Entertainment Weekly
“Elegantly crafted . . . The swirling currents of these characters' personal tragedies connect them, but they render no easy answers.” Daily Beast
“The Measures Between Us is a beautifully written and completely compelling story about the storms that flood towns and the ones that flood human lives. This is a novelistic debut of enormous accomplishment and even greater promise. It is the very esseence of a good read.” Stephen King
