Her childhood best friend, Agns, receives the news in America, far from the French countryside where the two girls were raised the place that Fabienne helped Agns escape ten years ago. Now, Agns is free to tell her story. As children in a backwater town, theyd built a private world, invisible to everyone but themselves until Fabienne hatched the plan that would change everything, launching Agns on an epic trajectory through fame, fortune, and terrible loss. A dark, ravishing tale winding from the rural provinces to Paris, from an English boarding school, to the quiet Pennsylvania home where Agns can live without her past. The Book of Goose is a story of intimacy and obsession, friendship and rivalry perfect for fans of Elena Ferrante, Ottessa Moshfegh and Kamila Shamsie. Beguiling A shimmering, unsettling tale of exploitation and manipulation Daily Mail Brilliant A novel of deceptions and cruelty Spectator For all its surface lushness, this is a novel of meticulous philosophical inquiryresonant with echoes of My Brilliant Friend, as well Elizabeth Strout electrifying Observer

Fans of Elena Ferrantes Neapolitan trilogy wont be disappointed, but the comparison undermines the skill with which Li tells her story, peeling back the layers to reveal the dark truths at the heart of Agnes and Fabiennes friendship Marie Claire [Li] has become one of our finest living authors: Her elegant metaphysics never elide the blood and maggots The most propulsively entertaining of Lis novels an existential fable that illuminates the tangle of motives behind our writing of stories New York Times Beguiling A shimmering, unsettling tale of exploitation and manipulation Daily Mail These two perverse, dangerous, glorious girls are their own creation and their own destiny, captured in the high noon of their lives Observer New Review Resonant with echoes of My Brilliant Friend, as well as authors including Elizabeth Strout and William Trevor For all its surface lushness, this is a novel of meticulous philosophical inquiry Observer Brilliant A novel of deceptions and cruelty Spectator 'Dazzling, subtle, skilful I loved it' Charlotte Mendelson, author of The Exhibitionist In a story about love and creation, Yiyun Li slips in a satire of the business of marketing authors deft and delicious Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Starling Days Yiyun Li has, again, done something new and gone somewhere wonderfully strange and alive. Beautiful, sad, funny and claustrophobic Jon McGregor, author of Lean Fall Stand A haunting novel about loss, friendship and storytelling Few writers match Yiyun Lis ability to explore human desire and ambition Tash Aw, author of Strangers on a Pier Meet Agns and FabienneCome for the writerly scheming, stay for the exquisitely calibrated examination of how our most tender and important bonds involve the manipulation of power and devotion LA Times
