Landfalls, Naomi J. WilliamsUK cover hi-res

“A dazzling debut novel about a lost expedition… A bona fide masterpiece.”
Seattle Times

“Ms. Williams brilliantly moves across continents and gives each landfall a distinct and evocative voice… Landfalls is intelligent and utterly human. Ms. Williams has written a seductive page-turner that … draws the reader in and doesn’t let go.
Wall Street Journal

“A beautiful tale of adventure, anchored in tragedy.”
Vanity Fair

“The drama in Landfalls is unrelenting … sort of a maritime version of ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.'”
New York Times

“An ingenious encounter with the past… A real surprise and a triumph.”
Barnes & Noble

“Williams’ exceptional debut isn’t your traditional seafaring yarn and is all the stronger and more penetrating for it.”

“An entertainingly erudite debut with a prismatic reimagining of the doomed French attempt to circumnavigate the globe in the 1780s.”
Kirkus Review

  1. I just finished reading Landfalls and enjoyed it immensely. I chose it from the new book shelves at the library, looking for something out of the ordinary. The construction of the story works well. The poignant fate of the very real characters will stay with me for a long time. I look forward to reading your next book.
