v'America's preeminent fiction writer' New Yorker Michaela and her husband have moved to the starkly beautiful but uncanny landscape of New Mexico, to take residency at a distinguished academic institute. But then Gerard is stricken with a mysterious illness, initially misdiagnosed, and soon their life begins to resemble a nightmare. At thirty-seven, Michaela faces the terrifying prospect of widowhood - and the loss of Gerard, whose identity has greatly shaped her own.

In vividly depicted scenes of escalating suspense, Michaela cares desperately for Gerard in his final days, and then careens through the chaos of the days after he is gone. Her love for her husband, however fierce and selfless, has not been enough to save him and his death is beyond her comprehension. A love that refuses to be surrendered at death - is this the blessing of a unique married love, or a curse that must be exorcized? Breathe is an exploration of haunting, a horror story about the raw madness of grief, and an intense, heart-wrenching love story that grapples with the philosophical questions most fundamental to our existence.


Breathe is a fever dream of a novel, and it’s as an allegory of grief that it most sparkles. . . . Breathe is also a moving meditation on grief time, where there is no beginning, no end, and ‘each hour, each day, passes with excruciating slowness yet it is all happening very quickly.’. . . Oates lands the book’s wonderful ending. . . . Surprising and inevitable.”  — New York Times Book Review
"Breathe is the highly affecting story of a woman facing the unimaginable loss of her spouse. . . . It’s hard to know what is real and what is imagined as the novel rushes toward its shocking and ambiguous ending." — Associated Press
"Effective and harrowing." — Santa Fe New Mexican
“Powerful. . . . Fecund with fear and anguish, and driven by raw, breathless narration, this hallucinatory tale will not disappoint. Oates is on a roll.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Gut-wrenching and devoid of sentimentality. . . . Recommended." — Library Journal
