From the acclaimed novelist and The Believer editor Heidi Julavits, a wildly imaginative and emotionally intense novel about mothers, daughters, and the psychic damage women can inflict on one another.
"The Vanishers is one of the best novels I've ever read, delivering all the immediate pleasures of mystery, horror, and satire." —Karen Russell, author of SWAMPLANDIA
"It is always an adventure and a delight to read Heidi Julavits. Her intellectual brio and descriptive inventiveness are on full display in The Vanishers, but she's gone further this time by inventing a new genre: the astral detective thriller." —Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize--winning author of A VISIT FROM THE GOON SQUAD
