Staff Reviews

I picked this up based solely on an intuitive response to the cover and the publisher’s stellar track record, cracking it without the faintest idea of plot, tone or character. It was a hunch that paid off terrifically – Hollow is engaging from the first page and its sardonic humor and emotional resonance create a vice grip that enthralls to its conclusion.

All you need to know about Egerton’s novel is that it purrs and hums like a kitten and will not disappoint.

An NPR Best Book of 2017

"With the kind of grace not usually seen in accessible modern fiction, Egerton also invokes many other things with this central metaphor . . . The core of Hollow is anything but." --NPR

"An incredibly imaginative examination of grief, faith, and the relationship between the two." --B&N Reads, 1 of 12 Must-Read Indie Books

"I was blown away by Owen Egerton's achingly beautiful, compulsively readable tale . . . Hollow is filled to the brim with wonder and the sadness of being human." --Sarah Hepola, New York Times bestselling author of Blackout

When Oliver Bonds loses his toddler son, his life is upended. It's only when he becomes convinced that the Earth is hollow that Oliver chases after this most unlikely of miracles, searching for a way to escape his past.
