    “[A] tender apocalyptic fable . . . endowed with such fullness of meaning that you have to assign this short, touching book its own category: the post-apocalypse utopia.” Wall Street Journal

    “A moving post-apocalyptic fable for grown-ups… Krivak delivers no small amount of poetry himself … A literary rejoinder of sorts to Alan Weisman’s The World Without Us (2007), Krivak’s slender story assures us that even without humans, the world will endure… it makes for a splendid thought exercise and a lovely fable-cum-novel. Ursula K. Le Guin would approve.” Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

    “Engagingly different… the narrative unfolds in graceful, luminous prose… Poignant but not tragic, this end-of-civilization story shows that there’s no loneliness in this world when we are one with nature.” Library Journal, Starred Review

    “With artistry and grace, National Book Award–finalist Krivak (The Sojourn) offers a story of endurance and a return to life with nature in a postapocalyptic world… This beautiful and elegant novel is a gem.” Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

    “[Krivak’s] sentences are polished stones of wonder. . . . The elegiac tone reflects what is lost and what will be lost, an enchantment as if Wendell Berry had reimagined Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.” Booklist

    The Bear is a luminous book of a standard one sees perhaps once every generation…. As [it] tenderly breaks your heart, piece by piece, it fills that void with something powerful and timeless. Written with precision, clarity, and gentle fluidity, The Bear reminds us that all we need to know awaits us in the wild.” —Mountain Book Competition Jury citation
