Description

The dark academia bestseller that defined an age
Truly deserving of the accolade Modern Classic, Donna Tartt’s cult bestseller The Secret History is a remarkable achievement – incredibly compelling, 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, and they discover how hard it can be to truly live and how easy it is to kill.

“It takes my breath away”. (Ruth Rendell).

“Enthralling …image the plot of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment crossed with the story of Euripides’ “Bacchae” set against the backdrop of Bret Easton Ellis’ “The Rules of Attraction”…forceful, cerebral and impeccably controlled…ferociously well-paced…remarkably powerful”. (“The New York Times”).

Donna Tartt was born in Greenwood, Mississippi, and educated at the University of Mississippi and Bennington College. She is a novelist, essayist, and critic and author of “The Little Friend”. “The Secret History” has been translated into twenty-four languages.

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
