Product Details


“Kinsey is in some ways a perfect subject for this sly and intrepid novelist…while Boyle is fascinated by the zealous energy of perfectionists like Kinsey, he is at bottom a defender of romance against the tyranny of reason.” —The New York Times Book Review

The Inner Circle may draw readers because of its sexy subject matter, but they will stay for the emotional punch of Boyle’s meditations on love, marriage, and jealousy.” —The San Francisco Chronicle

“Terrific…Kinsey looms as one of the most wonderfully repellent figures in recent literature, but Circle’s hero is smart, commonsensical Iris, who understands that Kinsey’s mechanistic views of sex fails to account for love, jealousy, and human nature.” —Entertainment Weekly

The Inner Circle is a harrowing depiction of how questionable are some of the consequences of sexual liberation…that the novel is a page-turner, with lots of sex in it, only serves Boyle’s purpose all the better.” —The Washington Post

“Compelling and subtly humorous…a biting satire of emotional manipulation, sexual indiscretion, and scientific hubris.” —The Boston Globe

The Inner Circle never lets you tear your eyes from the page.” —The Washington Post Book World
