THE BESTSELLER THAT DEFINED AN AGE 'Everything, somehow, fit together; some sly and benevolent Providence was revealing itself by degrees and I felt myself trembling on the brink of a fabulous discovery, as though any morning it was all going to come together---my future, my past, the whole of my life---and I was going to sit up in bed like a thunderbolt and say oh! oh! oh!' Under the influence of a charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at a New England college discover a way of thought and life a world away from their banal contemporaries. But their search for the transcendent leads them down a dangerous path, beyond human constructs of morality. 'Haunting, compelling and brilliant' The Times 'Irresistible and seductive' Guardian 'Enthralling... Forceful, cerebral and impeccably controlled' New York Times

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 *
