Críticas:

"What a stunning first novel! And Again was continually haunting me, and just when I thought I knew these characters, who are so vivid and singular in their desires and frailties, and yet so universal in their humanity, they surprised me once more until the pages were finished and I was left pondering our lives, our future, and how love still works. Jessica Chiarella has so much talent."
--Susan Straight, author of Between Heaven and Here

"AND AGAIN is a moving and beautifully crafted novel about the frailty of identity, the illusion of control, and the enduring power of love. A fantastic debut."
--Laila Lalami, author of The Moor's Account, Pulitzer Prize finalist and longlisted for the Man Booker Prize

"Contemplative . . . Chiarella's entrancing prose and fully fleshed characters should garner widespread, enthusiastic praise."--Booklist

"It was the unique premise of AND AGAIN that pulled me in, but it was Jessica Chiarella's luminous writing that kept me reading page after page. The characters were gorgeously observed, the world fully believable and utterly absorbing. I never wanted it to end."-Rebecca Johns, author of Countess and Icebergs

"[Jessica Chiarella] does an amazing job moving from character to character and delving into their inner thoughts. The idea of creating human clones is already a controversial subject, but this book offers an eye-opening view to the mental and psychological strain that it can cause. The vulnerability and self-consciousness of the characters makes them easy to relate to and endearing."--RT Reviews

"Chiarella's characters are well drawn, and their anguishes ring true. Do the people who love us in sickness and health really love us, or do they act out of a sense of duty? The SUBS have gotten a reprieve; what will they do with their second chance? Chiarella expresses their deep desires and yearnings with poetic compassion."--USA Today (3.5 out of 4 stars)

"AND AGAIN delivers a stunning journey challenging the nature of identity, weaving four stories into a cohesive narrative. You'll meet Hannah, an artistic prodigy, David, a congressman, Connie, an actress, and Linda, a wife and mother who lived completely paralyzed for eight years. As Chiarella gradually reveals the characters' pasts in tandem with their present courses, she illuminates the reality that their bodies--and our own--determine identity far more than expected."--Paste Magazine

"Chiarella's debut novel is an intriguing tale of the everyday efforts of medical advancement. Though the premise is sf, the story is realistic and largely character-focused. Chapters are set from the perspective of the four individuals and woven together to tell a story that deals with commonplace issues in everyday life. Similar to Karen Thompson Walker's The Age of Miracles, this is a great choice for fans of that novel"--Library Journal

"And Again is a fascinating and disturbing glimpse of a medical technology that some believe the future may hold for our society."--San Diego Book Review

"And Again is a heartbreaking exploration of what it means to be human as well as the moral dangers of scientific advancement."--The Absolute
