I fell completely under the spell of Anton DiSclafani's amazing first novel and was gripped by its lush and dreamy evocations of Southern decorum, family secrets, and boarding school rituals. DiSclafani is wildly talented, and this is a sexy, suspenseful, gorgeously written book
'DiSclafani's pitch-perfect details of time and place effortlessly drew me into this fantastic novel's authentic and alluring world'
DiSclafani's name is being bandied around in the same breath as The Secret History's Donna Tartt... A clever and compelling coming-of-age novel
Beautiful...steamy...it's a spectacular debut
Exciting, passionate and beautifully vivid
