From the PublisherFrancesca Duranti
author of The House on Moon Lake
Joseph Olshan has always written powerful narratives of contemporary life, but he has greatly extended his range in Vanitas. His latest book is a skillful weave of unconventional relationships, which have become more and more common in our times but are only now beginning to be written about. And yet every single page of his new work evinces the concerns of love and beauty, of raising a family, of death, and even eternity. This is a daring novel of an entirely new order.

Vanitas is Olshan's most haunting, complex work to date.
Howard Frank Mosher
author of Stranger in the Kingdom and North Country: A Personal Journal
Joseph Olshan's Vanitas is a brilliant affirmation of the wonders and mysteries of love in the face of one of the most terrifying diseases in human history. Beautifully written, entirely honest, and unfailingly dramatic, Vanitas is the best novel to date by one of America's finest fiction writers.
