The Secret History 25th anniversary edition Synopsis

A Hay Festival and The Poole VOTE 100 BOOKS for Women Selection Truly deserving of the accolade Modern Classic, Donna Tartt's cult bestseller The Secret History is a remarkable achievement - both compelling and elegant, dramatic and playful. Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and for ever.

The Secret History 25th anniversary edition Press Reviews

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 * Brilliant and compulsive * Evening Standard * Takes my breath away -- Ruth Rendell Donna Tartt is an amazingly good writer. She's dense, she's allusive. She's a gorgeous storyteller -- Stephen King A huge, mesmerizing, galloping read * Vanity Fair * So irresistible and seductive it's almost a guilty pleasure * Guardian * The Secret History succeeds magnificently ... A remarkably powerful novel [and] a ferociously well-paced entertainment ... Forceful, cerebral, and impeccably controlled * New York Times *
