Press Reviews

  • Publishers Weekly
    A searing debut... This devastating read stands less as a polemic against the death penalty than as a heartbreaking brief for the preciousness of life
  • Herman Koch, author of THE DINNER

    The Execution of Noa P. Singleton kept me awake long after I had put it down. Halfway through this gripping novel, in which 'good' and 'bad', 'guilt' and 'innocence' change positions more than once, I thought I was so clever I might know where this story was headed. But I was proved wrong in a way I never could have imagined
  • Rosamund Lupton, author of SISTER

    Smart, cool, articulate, funny and savvy - Noa P. Singleton dares you to put her story down
  • Katherine Dunn, author of GEEK LOVE

    The Execution of Noa P. Singleton is mortal war between ferocious women, told with a fiery and merciless lyricism so beautiful it hurts
  • Jill Dawson, author FRED & EDIE, THE GREAT LOVER, and LUCKY BUNNY

    Elizabeth L. Silver is a writer to watch out for, one of great scope and passion. Here she tackles a bold topic with skill, compassion and verve
  • Ben Fountain, author of BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK

    In The Execution of Noa P. Singleton, Elizabeth L. Silver puts the human factor front and centre, to devastating effect. Guilt and innocence, capital punishment, the living hell of death row, all these get their due, but at the heart of it is us, the ongoing mystery of what lies inside our souls
  • Ayelet Waldman, author of BAD MOTHER

    The Execution of Noa P. Singleton is an intense and gripping novel of betrayal and guilt that forces readers to confront their convictions and the limitations of their capacity for empathy. Elizabeth L. Silver is a gifted new writer, and her novel is certain to be a smash
  • Guardian
    Challenging and compelling
  • Washington Post
    As this unstoppable story bounds end-over-end to "X-Day," we are reminded that everybody is guilty of something. Forgiveness, freedom and peace are rare commodities, and Silver keeps us guessing about whether or not we will find them here
