Reviews

Lena Andersson can do no wrong. Acts of Infidelity is a novel of heartbreak told with intellectual rigor. It gripped me from first page to last. Fantastic! -- Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones
There are few people writing about love and longing with such unflinching sharpness and insight as Lena Andersson. She gives feelings and experiences so often dismissed as trivial the attention and gravity they deserve, to brilliant, and often painful, effect. -- Sophie Mackintosh, author of The Water Cure
This is a follow up to Wilful Disregard, but you don't need to have read that to appreciate the craftsmanship of Acts of Infidelity . . . Andersson's book is cutting and honest, and Ester's situation and feelings are frustrating, complicated and so, so real. * Stylist *
I haven't been able to stop thinking about this truly stunning read . . . It's so insidious and calculated, and this intellectual giant of a woman so blind to reality, that I wanted to shake her. Endless wisdom and elegance - buy immediately * Daily Mail *
A thoughtful and sharp exploration of how our culture views infidelity * Elle Magazine *
Wise and elegant - I can't stop thinking about it. * Daily Mail *

Andersson (well served by Saskia Vogel's subtle translation) is an electrifying
writer

-- Catherine Taylor * Times Literary Supplement *
