Elliott Bay Book Company says
In Sweet Lamb of Heaven (W.W. Norton), Lydia Millett has written her most psychologically astute and chilling novel yet - which is saying something. Her earlier books - Ghost Light, Magnificence, and Mermaids in Paradise - have all been taut, smart, edgy books.

“Sweet Lamb of Heaven confounded me, delightfully so…I have little patience with literary novels that claim to have the propulsive momentum of a thriller, yet Millet pulls it off…It is Anna's voice—cool, intelligent, passionate, contradictory—that makes this novel so affecting…[H]ow I missed it when it was gone, how I yearned for it to speak to me again.” — Laura Lippman, New York Times Book Review

“[W]e have a real thriller on our hands…part of a higher-stakes game being played by Millet, one that will ultimately, unabashedly touch on time, beauty, horror, God, demons and the very nature of being. By novel's end…the stakes have been raised through the roof.” — Laird Hunt, Los Angeles Times
