The Sea Came in at Midnight: A Novel

'“One of the most important writers of his generation. Reading The Sea Came in at Midnight you feel your entire history speeding by as an amorphous blur. Erickson’s work feels like right here, right now. Against it, most new fiction reads like it was written by stenographers.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Erickson is a master, a dizzying rewriter of history, myth and apocalypse. In the author’s universe, entire cities, entire cultures go insane all at once. From the ruins he creates a new tribe, a new kinship map, a strange new world for his characters to enter, reunited, close to whole.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review “Erickson’s best book. This dark dream of a novel reverberates as something both archetypal and up to the minute. It’s the news that exists between the lines, the story behind the story, a siren song, a lighthouse’s warning beacon.” —Newsday “Against a background of chaos, Erickson has fashioned an ingenious Moebius strip of a book.” —The New Yorker “Provocative, visionary, the literary equivalent of a tsunami, into which the reader must dive headlong or risk drowning in the author’s flood of dreamlike imagery.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto)'
