Product Details

Praise

“Part psychological novel, part social history, part eerie horror tale, Mary Reilly is dark and moving and powerful.” —The Washington Post

“The generosity with which Mary Reilly is imagined, the elegance of Martin’s writing and the depth of her engagement with her title character make it a memorable and absorbing experience.” —Chicago Tribune

“Valerie Martin creates memorable characters: the pompous butler…an unctuous landlord…and the utterly convincing Mary, with a housemaid’s eye, a servant’s rigorous sense of place-and a sufferer’s hard won dignity.” —Newsweek

Mary Reilly is an achievement-creativity skating exhilaratingly on thin ice.” —The New York Times

“Mary is a remarkable character…. A marvelous performance.” —USA Today

“Brilliant…. A powerful and moving novel.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Haunting…. Powerful…. Mary Reilly’s voice…casts a spell from the beginning: we turn the pages, furiously compelled, because we must know more about her.” —Chicago Sun-Times

“Entrancing and elegant…. A seamless retelling of the Jekyll and Hyde story that is both a compliment and a complement to the original.” —The Orlando Sentinel

Mary Reilly is intensely cinematic, highly dramatic, suspenseful, stirring and entirely absorbing…. Mary Reilly is magnificent.” —The Kansas City Star

Mary Reilly is a virtuoso work, a meticulously crafted, resplendently written story…. Authentic in its abundance of historical detail, it is also unbounded in Martin’s imaginative exploration of the psyche of a young girl.” —Daily News
