`There are books we like well enough to recommend, but there are a very few - To Kill a Mockingbird, Catch-22, The Things They Carried - that we remember forever. To my own shortlist I can now add My Absolute Darling, by Gabriel Tallent ... The word "masterpiece" has been cheapened by too many blurbs, but My Absolute Darling absolutely is one' Stephen King `Tallent's breathtaking debut is a harrowing and at times psychologically difficult journey on the scale of A Little Life or The Goldfinch, but it's worth it ... A true inspiration' Harper's Bazaar `My Absolute Darling is an absolute triumph' National `If you liked Hanya Yanagihara's A Little Life, you'll love this' Daily Mail `A debut novel infused with the same spirit and raw power as To Kill a Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, and other works we consider to be modern classics, and it will hold its own among them' 15 Bytes `[Turtle] recalls the great child characters of American Literature' New York Times `Easily one of my favourite debut novels of the last decade' Michele Filgate, Lit Hub `Fierce, insightful and gorgeously written debut. Outstanding' PSYCHOLOGIES magazine `Tallent's prose is outstanding, vivid and poetic' S Magazine `[Turtle] is a heroine who'll hover in your mind long after the final chapter, and Tallent has produced an intense, gloriously written account of her thrilling bid for freedom' Mail on Sunday `Vivid, tender and brutal' Elle Magazine `Brutal yet beautiful, My Absolute Darling has floored me. Dear Turtle, a heroine amidst the horror. Exceptional, unflinching storytelling' Ali Landâ , author of Good Me Bad Me `Unlike anything I've read before. An astonishing debut' Kate Hamer, author of The Girl in the Red Coat
