Reviews

  • "Enough betrayal, vengeance and sex to read like one of the Greek tragedies"

    Observer
  • "Rich, lyrical and rewarding."

    Paula Hawkins, author of THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, Guardian (Books of the Year)
  • "A lyrical and, at times, astonishingly beautiful account of how little it is possible to know about those closest to us."

    Financial Times
  • "Addictive to read ... Groff has drawn a woman so complex it seems that with every chapter a new layer is revealed, each as deliciously intriguing as the next … The result is a compelling portrait of an unconventional marriage across two decades."

    Stylist
  • "[A] stunning achievement. The plotting is elegant, intricate and assured . . . it will give you much to savour."

    Independent
  • "Absorbing and beautifully written, this is a riveting study of love, power and creativity."

    Sunday Express
  • "A truly special novel ... if you haven't read her before, I'm delighted to take the credit for introducing you to one of your new favourite authors."

    The Pool
  • "A searing exploration of how far a person will go for love, loyalty and revenge."

    Time
  • "Rare and impressive Groff has created a novel of extraordinary and genuine complexity…The word “ambitious” is often used as code for “overly ambitious”, a signal that an author’s execution has fallen short. No such hidden message here. Lauren Groff is a writer of rare gifts, and Fates and Furies is an unabashedly ambitious novel that deliverswith comedy, tragedy, well-deployed erudition and unmistakable glimmers of brilliance throughout."

    New York Times
  • "A book to submit to and be knocked out by."
