Reviews

Praise for THE STANDING CHANDELIER

`Terrific, skewering the notion that the sisterhood beats all' Katie Law, Evening Standard

`A slender book but a sharp one, eloquent about the various ways that people try to possess one another' Observer

`The woman can't write an unintelligent sentence ... Shriver has something of the John Updike or Patricia Highsmith eye' The Times

`This rapier-like novella finds her on wickedly fine form ... at its sharpest, it's downright Austen-esque' EVENT Magazine

`A short, brutal gem of a novel ... so sharp, so true, so pitiless' Evening Standard

Praise for THE MANDIBLES: A Family, 2029-2047

`As ever, Shriver cuts close to the bone! . . . Distinctly chilling' Independent

`Shriver is fast becoming the go-to novelist for some of the big issues . . . breezy, mordantly comic . . . if the test of a futuristic novel is its eerie proximity to the present, this passes with flying colours' Daily Mail

`Impressively sweeping... Shriver's intelligence, mordant humour and vicious leaps of imagination all combine to make this a novel that is as unsettling as it is entertaining in its portrait of the cataclysmic unravelling of the American dream' Financial Times

`The stuff of nightmares . . . Shriver cleverly balances tragedy with black comedy' Sunday Express

`It's scaring the hell out of me' TRACY CHEVALIER

`Shriver is as brilliant, funny and incisive as ever' Woman and Home

`Insightful and darkly funny' Good Housekeeping

`Her verve and ambition are impressive . . . Few writers since William Gaddis in his brilliant JR have had the chutzpah to take on America's particular money madness' Mail on Sunday
