Product description

Review

‘Dazzlingly subversive… a page-turner told in visceral prose’
‘Has the makings of a feminist classic’ THE INDEPENDENT

‘This novel rips the original novel open to fill in all the gaps. Case burrows into their psyches to reveal a further layer of family secrets’ THE TIMES

‘Alison Case has cracked open Wuthering Heights and inserted into the gaps her own richly imagined story. In doing so she manages to pay homage to Emily Brontë without copying her. I never thought I needed more Wuthering Heights. Now I wonder how I could have been satisfied with only the original telling.’ TRACY CHEVALIER

‘This engrossing story of loyalty, love and sacrifice is so good it deserves to be a classic in its own right’ GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

‘Spirited and imaginative’ WOMAN AND HOME

‘A gripping tale of familial turmoil and thwarted passion…Alison Case has created a world so real, so grounded in visceral detail, that no prior knowledge of the Brontë classic is required. However I suspect her debut Nelly Dean will entice many (including this reviewer) to reread the original, with fresh and knowing eyes’ IRISH INDEPENDENT

‘[A] rich reimagining of the classic’ Sainsbury’s Magazine

‘Utterly engrossing’ THE POOL

About the Author

Alison Case received her BA from Oberlin College and her PhD in English Literature from Cornell University. A Professor of English at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, she has published two books and many articles on nineteenth-century British fiction and poetry. This is her first novel.
