Reviews

  • Astoundingly original, this impressive debut belongs on the shelf with your Margaret Atwood and Octavia Butler collections.

    New York Times
  • The Illness Lesson is a brilliant, suspenseful, beautifully-executed psychological thriller. With power, subtlety, and keen intelligence, Clare Beams has somehow crafted a tale that feels like both classical ghost story and like a modern (and very timely) scream of female outrage. I stayed up all night to finish reading it, and I can still feel its impact thrumming through my mind and body. A masterpiece.

    Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
  • ‘Subtle, clever, suspenseful . . . builds to a shocking climax’

    Diane Setterfield
  • Alcott meets Shirley Jackson, with a splash of Margaret Atwood. It’s dark, quirky and even titillating . . . on the edge between realism and ghost story

    The Washington Post
  • A top pick for the coming year . . . this haunting novel blends historical fiction with a timely comment on women’s bodies and minds, and those who think they can control them. Unmissable.
