Praise for Kingdom of the Young

"A probing and deeply ruminative cross-genre odyssey. Meidav pulls readers through a series of dreamy, complex, poignant stories with language that is by turns gauzy-poetic and pinpoint-precise but unfailingly inventive.... A penetrating collection that glides among an impressive breadth of storytelling modes with warmth and easy brilliance."
Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Kingdom of the Young will engage readers for its clear authority, musical language and its surprising empathy.”
—Gary Shteyngart

“These stories are dazzling, full of knowledge of the world and of the heart, and written with the pluck and thrum of a flamenco guitarist. Meidav draws you into world after world; she makes you want to sit by your window and listen all night.”
—Paul La Farge
