Reviews

Praise for Big Brother:

`Big Brother is brilliant, very different from Kevin but equally compelling. A great tale of a challenging modern problem and the power of sibling devotion' Dawn O'Porter

`Glorious, fearless, almost fanatically hard-working prose. Nothing here feels half-hearted or accidental. There is so much to revel and enjoy...and the result is writing of a beauty and character that is lamentably missing from so much literary fiction'
GUARDIAN

`Her best novel yet...who would have thought that a novel about a diet could be so moving, and so suspenseful?'
INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

`Shriver is wonderful at the things she is always wonderful at'
INDEPENDENT

`Shriver is a brilliant writer. She has a strong, clear and strangely seductive voice. The characters are strong. The tensions - and hope, and disappointments, and struggles - are well done . . . so moving it will make you want to gasp or cry' SUNDAY TIMES

`From the start I was gripped by its story. Once again, Shriver has provided much food for thought'
DAILY MAIL

`Lionel Shriver's Big Brother has the muscle to overpower its readers. It is a conversation piece of impressive heft' THE NEW YORK TIMES

`Piercingly bleak in tone and formally original in execution. It takes the reader by surprise, reminding us, not a moment too soon, that Shriver is a novelist as well as a polemicist. The push-and-pull of a marriage is something that Shriver continues to write exceptionally well. Shriver turns the story on its head and brings a novelist's panache to the true-life tale' DAILY TELEGRAPH

`Big Brother finds the funny - and the pathos - in fat'
