Agnes Day - sub-editor, suburbanite, failure extraordinaire - is unwell. Terminally middle-class, incurably romantic and chronically confused by life's most basic equations, Agnes discovers disconcerting gaps in her general education which make recovery unlikely. Life and love go on without her, but with the barest minimum of cosmetic assistance she can pass herself off as a success. Beneath her fiction, however, the burden of truth becomes harder to bear.

'This is a sceptical, ironic, beautifully resonant prose, articulate throughout, with never a lapse. . . a splendid novel'

Philip Hobsbawm, Guardian

'Told with irony and insight and some surreally beautiful imagery. At times it made me laugh out loud' Shena Mackay

'She is a writer with a poet's eye for convincing detail, and touches on the raw emotions of life in a way that is affecting and true' Sunday Telegraph



'Funny and full of promise. Rachel Cusk writes very well and distinctively' Margaret Drabble

'Rachel Cusk is the outstanding discovery of the year' Daniel Johnson, The Times

Review:

"Smart, subtle, stylish, and witty."-"The Boston Herald Sunday" "A novel so much more than just clever and sharp that it might be said to be wise . . . Cusk has heart and depth in abundance, and "Saving Agnes" showcases both."-Abby Frucht, "The Village Voice" "Quirky but appealing characters and wry social commentary. . . Exquisite and sometimes diabolical."-Publishers Weekly
