The Secret History

Donna Tartt

Truly deserving of the accolade Modern Classic, Donna Tartt’s novel The Secret History is a remarkable achievement - both compelling and elegant, dramatic and playful.

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of normal morality their lives are changed profoundly and for ever.

Enthralling …image the plot of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment crossed with the story of Euripides' Bacchae set against the backdrop of Bret Easton Ellis' The Rules of Attraction …forceful, cerebral and impeccably controlled…ferociously well-paced…remarkably powerful. (The New York Times).
