By turns touching, confiding, and
matter-of-fact…Engrossing, dense,
and believable.

Astounding…Nesbit brings alive
questions of war and power
that dog us to this day.

I am in awe of this novel…
The Wives of Los Alamos will be read
and reread and remembered.

[A] fascinating and artful debut…
This is a novel—and a writer—
of consequence.

Recommended both for its important subject matter and for the author’s vivid storytelling.
