  • A perfect jewel of a book, a dark emerald set in the Irish laureate’s fictional tiara, alongside her Man Booker Prize winner The Gathering (2007) and The Green Road (2015). Its brilliance is complex and multifaceted, but completely lucidActress is a deeply humane, often darkly funny novel about the exercise of power over sexually attractive women. The grim subject matter is illuminated by Enright’s acute sensitivity to languageEnright proves, once again, her genius.

  • Anne Enright, the unofficial rock star of literary fiction, cements her stardom with Actress.

  • Actress absolutely enthralled me… [An] immersive, masterful novel.

    Anya Meyerowitz, Red Magazine
  • In Katherine O’Dell, her fictional fallen star of stage and screen…Enright has created a heroine as irresistible to the reader as to her audiences… She has become a byword for contemporary Irish literary fiction at its finest.

    Lisa Allardice, Guardian
  • May I recommend Actress by Anne Enright. Her writing is always pitch perfect, but this is truly exquisite. If there is such a thing as the perfect novel, this is it.
