Notes on a Scandal

by Zoe Heller

Notes on a Scandal Synopsis

'Fascinating, brilliant, horribly addictive' Guardian From the day that Sheba Hart joins the staff at St George's, history teacher Barbara Covett is convinced that she has found a kindred spirit. When Sheba is discovered having an illicit affair with one of her pupils, Barbara appoints herself Sheba's chief defender. Yet all is not as it first appears in this dark story and as Sheba will eventually discover, a friend can be as treacherous as any lover. 'Superbly gripping' Daily Telegraph

Notes on a Scandal Press Reviews

A subtle study in obsession and loneliness ... my take-it-to-the-beach recommendation -- Monica Ali * Guardian Summer Reading * Reads like a nose through someone else's bathroom cabinet: full of guilty insights and delicious snobbery * Independent * Brilliant, nasty, gripping -- Zadie Smith * Observer * Excellent. An undercurrent of subtle malice, cleverly controlled by Heller * Evening Standard * Deliciously sinister * Daily Mail * Superbly gripping. One of the most compelling books I've read in ages * Daily Telegraph * Fascinating, brilliant, horribly addictive * Guardian *
