A Novel

by Therese Bohman Translated by Marlaine Delargy

A Newsweek Best Book of the Year 2018
A World Literature Today Notable Translation of the Year

“[Bohman] perceptively explores the constraints facing a female professor in the academic world…compelling, nuanced, at times comical.” —Newsweek, Best Books of the Year

Eventide is full of damn fine writing, but it’s the novel’s irreverent attitude toward feminism that makes it as challenging as it is necessary to read.” —Los Angeles Review of Books

“This insightful novel is at once cutting and beautiful…masterful and devastating.” —Three Percent

“Bohman…is an adroit novelist with deep insights into the mind and heart of Karolina, a complex character whose restlessness, irresolution, and search for meaning make every one of her actions, both hesitancies and uncertainties, plausible and psychologically rich. Intelligent, impassioned, and compelling, [Eventide] explores complex inner worlds with great sensitivity and insight.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Bohman’s prose is clear-eyed and arresting…With literary flare and levelheaded pacing, Eventide provides a glimpse into the unsettling nuances of academic gender politics and the restless, unbounded nature of female aging and agency.” —Shelf Awareness

“Moving…This psychologically rich journey provides insight into an intelligent, successful woman who burns with needs she fears she can’t fulfill.” —Publishers Weekly

“An absorbing feminist novel of psychological suspense…[Bohman’s] details about ivory-tower life are spot-on; she nails turf wars in academia with subtle wit…The novel ends in an elegant twist awash in schadenfreude. Eventide is ink well spent.” —World Literature Today

“Bohman is a powerful artist of human feelings, and presents a compelling portrait of the inner life of the woman at the heart of her novel…a highly rewarding read.” —PopMatters

“A heady, philosophical novel that’s also moving and absorbing.” —BookRiot

Eventide is a spare, utterly satisfying tale of male frailty and one woman’s delicate act of revenge. Therese Bohman is a mesmerizing talent; she writes with wit, honesty, and devastating poise.” —Lucy Ives, author of Impossible Views of the World

“Therese Bohman’s arresting novel explores contemporary mores with crystalline reflections on art and culture, passion and its absence…An intelligent, uncompromising story.” —Sylvia Brownrigg, author of Pages for Her

“Both incisive and tender, Therese Bohman’s elegant Eventide leaves no stone unturned in the heart of her protagonist…Reading it was like having an intimate conversation with a brilliant woman in a deceptively still and quiet room.” —Bonnie Nadzam, author of Lions
