"The Book of Stone is going to have everyone on the planet talking. Blisteringly smart, provocative and passionate, Papernick’s astounding novel layers a complex father and son story onto the Jewish/​Arab conflict, where fierce loyalties and stunning betrayals are about to detonate. Nothing is as it seems in this divided American world: the political becomes personal, religious faith overrides family, and fear can shatter the possibility of love. An astonishing achievement that’s sure to ignite dialogue--and as the best works of art do, push us to see the world differently."

Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You.

Equal parts thriller and literary epic—a smart, haunting novel that entertains as it apprises. Papernick writes with impressive breadth, in turns crafting the minute details of a psychological profile and dissecting the vast socio-political complexities of religious zealotry pushed to its outer limits. The Book of Stone is an important read for our historical moment.
