Praise

Praise for Lawrence Osborne:
 
“[A] startlingly good observer of privilege, noting the rites and rituals of the upper classes with unerring precision and an undercurrent of malice… Osborne has been described as an heir to Graham Greene, and he shares with Greene an interest in what might be called the moral thriller.” Katie Kitamura, New York Times Book Review

“[Osborne’s] distinguished palette includes the big yearning of Scott Fitzgerald and the decadent hedonism of Charles Baudelaire. Most impressive of all, and there is much to be impressed by, Osborne handles surface and depth with immense skill, as only great writers do.” Deborah Levy, Financial Times

“[Lawrence Osborne] unites Graham Greene’s fondness for foreign soil with Patricia Highsmith’s fascination with the nastier coils of the human psyche… What makes Osborne’s work so compelling is that it’s ruthlessly unpredictable.” NPR
 
“Osborne’s writing is uncomfortably well observed; his story is sickeningly, addictively headlong” Lionel Shriver, author of We Need to Talk about Kevin
 
“If the purpose of a novel is to take you away from the everyday and show you something different, then Osborne is succeeding, and handsomely” Lee Child, New York Times Book Review

 “Mr. Osborne has a keen and sometimes cruel eye for humans and their manners and morals… Surprising and dark and excellent” New York Times
