“Move over, Ove (in Fredrik Backman’s A Man Called Ove)—there’s a new curmudgeon to love. . . Walking in Eleanor’s practical black Velcro shoes is delightfully amusing, her prudish observations leavened with a privately puckish humor. But readers will also be drawn in by her tragic backstory, which slowly reveals how she came to be so entirely Eleanor. Witty, charming, and heartwarming, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is a remarkable debut about a singular woman. Readers will cheer Eleanor as she confronts her dark past and turns to a brighter future. Feel good without feeling smarmy.” –Booklist (starred review)

“Honeyman’s endearing debut is part comic novel, part emotional thriller, and part love story. . . hilarious, deadpan, and irresistible.” –Kirkus Reviews

“[A] captivating debut. . . a feel-good story that will make readers laugh and cheer for Eleanor as she learns that the past doesn’t dictate the future, and that happiness can be hers. This is a must-read for those who love characters with quirks.” –BookPage

“Eleanor Oliphant is a truly original literary creation: funny, touching, and unpredictable. Her journey out of dark shadows is expertly woven and absolutely gripping.” –Jojo Moyes, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Me Before You

“Like a contemporary Jane Eyre, Gail Honeyman’s Eleanor Oliphant is a woman scarred by profound loneliness, and the shadow of a harrowing childhood she can’t even bear to remember. Bit by bit, and with extraordinary courage, however, Eleanor begins peeling the layers of protective numbness, letting others near for the first time, and reaching for the life she hasn’t believed she deserves. Deft, compassionate and deeply moving–Honeyman’s debut will have you rooting for Eleanor with every turning page. I loved this story.” –Paula McClain, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Wife and Circling the Sun

“So powerful–I completely loved Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.” –Fiona Barton, New York Times bestselling author of The Widow

“Moving, hilarious, and intriguing, just like its unique, anti-social, anti-heroine. You will fall in love with Eleanor Oliphant.” –J. Ryan Stradal, New York Times bestselling author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest

“Honeyman’s debut is a stunner, as buoyant and charming as it is heartwrenching and emotionally sophisticated. Poor Eleanor Oliphant–often clueless, at times maddening, but always fascinating–walks right off the page and into the reader’s heart. Not only is Eleanor Oliphant completely fine, she’s a revelation.” –Jonathan Evison, author of This Is Your Life, Harriet Chance

“Eleanor Oliphant endears herself to the reader with her cantankerous charm and her disarmingly inscrutable voice. A compulsive, irresistible narrative that arcs toward compassion and light.” –Mona Awad, author of 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl

“Heart-wrenching and wonderful!” –Nina Stibbe, bestselling author of Paradise Lodge
