Reviews

"Harris keeps the suspense high all the way to the exhilarating ending. This spectacular feat of storytelling will seduce the reader from page one."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred)"
"Joanne Harris's previous novels set at the tweedy British boarding school St. Oswald's embodied the spirit of a fierce chess match. The icy rage and ruthless revenge is turned up even higher in A Narrow Door, in which St. Oswald's, long a boys-only domain, is dragged into the current century with the appointment of its first headmistress in its 500-year-old existence. To the chagrin of the elderly Latin master Roy Straitley, Rebecca Buckfast's arrival not only portends change, it leads to the excavation of secrets from St. Oswald's depths -- namely, the literal unearthing of a long-buried body. Readers will learn the dead person's identity, but the novel's most shocking revelations have to do with the loss of one woman's agency and the means, however terrible, even monstrous, through which she can reclaim it."--Sarah Weinman "New York Times Book Review"
