Zoe Heller's darkly comic third novel, The Believers explores a family pushed to its limits. When Audrey makes a devastating discovery about her husband, New York radial lawyer Joel Litvinoff, she is forced to re-examine everything she thought she knew about their forty-year marriage. Joel's children will soon have to come to terms with this unsettling secret themselves, but for the meantime, they are trying tot cope with their own dilemmas. Rosa, a disillusioned revolutionary, is grappling with a new found attachment to Orthodox Judaism. Karla, an unhappily married social worker, is falling in love with an unlikely suitor at the hospital where she works. Adopted brother Lenny is back on drugs again. In the course of battling their own demons and each other, every member of the family is called upon to decide what - if anything - they still believe in. 'Profoundly satisfying. No other novel would readily stand in its stead ...pulses with thematic and intellectual content ...Heller's prose is clean, warm and smart' Lionel Shriver, Daily Telegraph 'Astonishingly well-observed and stunningly written, a subtle, funny family farce ...in its thundering confidence, The Believers is the work of a writer at the top of her game' Guardian Zoe Heller is the author of three novels, Everything You Know, Notes on a Scandal, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2003 and The Believers.
