Chloe Benjamin’s instant-bestselling novel “The Immortalists” asks the question: If you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life?
It's 1969 in New York City's Lower East Side, and word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children–four adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness–sneak out to hear their fortunes. The prophecies inform their next five decades. Both a dazzling family love story and a sweeping novel of remarkable ambition and depth, “The Immortalists” probes the line between destiny and choice, reality and illusion, this world and the next.
