“The Enlightenment of the Greengage Tree is a hugely ambitious book, blending familial drama with the history of a nation during a conflicted era. At times, those shifts between the micro and the macro—and back again—can be dizzying, but I appreciated Azar’s sense of scale throughout. Even more effective, and frequently heartbreaking, was the way Azar’s narrative allowed the border between the living and the dead to be porous, making for some of this novel’s most moving and disquieting sections.”
