Product description

Review

Praise for THE MANDIBLES: A Family, 2029–2047

‘As ever, Shriver cuts close to the bone! . . . Distinctly chilling’ Independent

‘A tale that fizzes with ideas and jokes . . . the comedy is pitch black’ The Times

‘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

‘A scary, depressing and convincing horror story, akin to reading about teetering on the edge of a precipice while actually teetering on the edge of a precipice’ Spectator

‘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
