Reviews

Praise for Alice Thomas Ellis and The Summer House

"A work of astonishing illumination and delight...so edgy, bright and subversive about women's inner lives and experience."--Francine Prose, New York Times Book Review

"Her style is succinct, her humor dry...Unputdownable."--The Spectator

"The subtlety of James, the comedy of Spark, the penetrating--and the deep, unflinching--eye of Jane Austen."--Kirkus Reviews

"A witty and original writer."--Times Literary Supplement

"Inspired malice...Alice Thomas Ellis only bothers with the things that really bother her. That's why her novel is short. That's why her novel is good."--Victoria Glendinning in The Times

"It oozes enjoyable malice."--Observer

"The glitter comes from Alice Thomas Ellis's mastery in keeping just the right distance between tones and undertones...This is a dark comedy."--Sunday Times
