“Urgently real and magically unreal . . . A breathy, wonderful holler of a novel, deeply lodged in the ocean’s merciless blue . . . [Hunt] sinks an anchor into the soul of its lost young protagonist.” —The Village Voice
“The Seas is creepy and poetic, subversive and strangely funny, [and] a phenomenal piece of literature.” —MICHELLE TEA
