Product description


Praise for The Little Stranger

A classic gothic page-turner.--USA Today

Waters, a master at stoking anticipation, withholds the truth about her ghost until the final pages...subtle, surprising, and deeply, deeply chilling.--NPR

Haunted by the spirits of Henry James and Edgar Allan Poe...Waters is just one turn of the screw away from 'The Fall of the House of Usher.' She keeps the lightening flashing in every gloomy chapter, and you can't help but gasp, 'It's alive!'--The Washington Post

Sarah Waters is an excellent, evocative writer, and this is an incredibly gripping and readable novel.--The New York Times Book Review (Editor's Choice)

With its subtly orchestrated suspense and spot-on portrayal of English class divisions, Waters's literary ghost story delights.--People

A virtuoso writer...If you want a ghost story that creeps up your spine, The Little Stranger delivers.--The Seattle Times

A near-perfect gothic novel... It's an astonishing performance, right down to the book's mournful and devastating final sentence.-- Salon

Waters creates an atmosphere of quiet dread that's unnerving and compelling.--Time

Marvelous and truly spooky.--The Boston Globe

Rich with historic detail and slow, deliberate building toward the revelation of its secrets, [The Little Stranger] delights even as it leaves you unnerved.--The Miami Herald

Like the gloomy English weather, an air of impending doom lingers over every chapter of The Little up-all-night page-turner that provides a cogent dose of social commentary.--The Cleveland Plain Dealer
