The unforgettable new novel about the enduring power of connection in a world of increasing distance, from the bestselling, National Book Award-winning author of The Friend

‘Sharp-eyed and tender … As compassionate as it is disquieting, and as funny as it is painfully honest’ PAULA HAWKINS

‘Smart and sad and funny’ SARAH MOSS

‘Nunez has a wry compassion, and an eye for the kind of detail only grown-ups can catch’ ANNE ENRIGHT

Three strangers are thrown together in one Manhattan apartment: a solitary writer; a Gen Z college drop-out; and a spirited parrot named Eureka. The Vulnerables reveals what happens when strangers are willing to open their hearts to each other and how far even small acts of caring can go to ease another’s distress.

Smart, funny and provocative, Sigrid Nunez’s new novel explores the nature and purpose of friendship, love and art in our complicated current times.
