When the new teacher first arrives, Barbara immediately senses that this woman will be different from the rest of her staff-room colleagues. But Barbara is not the only one to feel that Sheba Hart is special, and before too long Sheba is involved in an illicit affair with a pupil. Barbara finds the relationship abhorrent, of course, but she is the only adult in whom Sheba can properly confide. So when the liaison is found out and Sheba's life falls apart, Barbara is there...

Reviews

"An intense, witty, literary page-turner"--"Entertainment Weekly" "Equally adroit at satire and at psychological suspense, Zoe Heller charts the course of a predatory friendship and demonstrates the lengths to which some people go for human company."--"The New Yorker" "A deliciously perverse, laugh-out-loud-funny novel."--"Vogue" "A triumph of intelligence and narrative control."--"The Times" (London) "Heller is a great ventriloquist of character, and as the unhinged curator of the Sheba affair, Barbara is painfully note perfect."--"The Washington Post Book World" "Wicked and wonderful social satire."--"Glamour"

This book has been on my wish list for a couple of years, and when I read that it had been made into a film with Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett – and then saw a trailer for the film – I got a copy of the book and read it straight away. I rarely use the term ‘unputdownable’, but this psychological thriller fits the description. The story is written entirely from Barbara’s (Judi’s) point of view, and it’s a risk for a writer to try and sustain that device, but in many ways this simply adds to the tension. A superb read, reminiscent of Ruth Rendell’s early ‘Barbra Vine’ novels. I can’t wait to see the film!
