Praise for The Secret History

  • Enthralling. Imagine the plot of Crime and Punishment crossed with the story of Euripides' Bacchae set against the backdrop of Bret Easton Ellis's The Rules of Attraction. Forceful, cerebral and impeccably controlled . . . ferociously well paced . . . remarkably powerful - New York Times

  • 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
