Review:

‘Tense, shocking and terrifyingly good’ Closer

‘A dark and witty novel’ Company

‘Unputdownable. An extraordinary book’ Elizabeth Forbes, author of Nearest Thing to Crazy

If you liked We Need to Talk About Kevin, this spiky, disconcerting debut novel is for you.’ Glamour

‘Superbly paced and structured, with dialogue worthy of Lena Dunham, Mother, Mother is an engrossing, and ?nally shocking, read.’ Guardian

‘Josephine is a chillingly, convincing self-centered narcissist. The very different ways that the three children are threatened by their ‘perfect’ mother and fight to survive her attentions make this an original and cleverly paced psychological thriller’ Daily Mail
