Product Description:

The Secret History

Review:

The Secret History succeeds magnificently ... A remarkably powerful novel [and] a ferociously well-paced entertainment ... Forceful, cerebral, and impeccably controlled ( New York Times)

So irresistible and seductive it's almost a guilty pleasure ( Guardian)

A huge, mesmerizing, galloping read ( Vanity Fair)

Donna Tartt is an amazingly good writer. She's dense, she's allusive. She's a gorgeous storyteller (Stephen King)

Takes my breath away (Ruth Rendell)

Brilliant and compulsive ( Evening Standard)

A haunting, compelling, and brilliant piece of fiction ... Packed with literary allusion and told with a sophistication and texture that owes much more to the nineteenth century than to the twentieth ( The Times)
