The Divers' Game

Editorial reviews

The Divers' Game

If dystopian stories serve as thought experiments, the best ones also function as heart experiments. And with The Divers' Game, Jesse Ball has unsettlingly accomplished both.

Readers who appreciate Ball’s keen, melancholic, and often sadly satirical view of human society will likely appreciate this timely assessment of where division might take us and how it affects the generations that come after us.

The novel’s depiction of life in this dystopian world is eerie and suffused with symbolic weight.
