Product Details


“I really wish I had written this book. It’s a tragi-comedy set in Ireland after the First World War. A real work of craftsmanship, where the heroine is also the narrator, yet has no idea what is going on. You read it with mounting horror and hilarity as you begin to grasp her delusion.” —Hilary Mantel

“A fine novel, wickedly alive.” —Victoria Glendinning, The Sunday Times

“Dark, complex, engaging . . . a wonderful tour de force.” —Marian Keyes

“I have read and re-read Molly Keane more, I think, than any other writer. Nobody else can touch her as a satirist, tragedian, and dissector of human behaviour. I love all her books, but Good Behaviour  and  Loving and Giving are the ones I return to most.” —Maggie O’Farrell

“Enchanting.” —Edna O’Brien, The Observer

“An extraordinary tour de force of fictional presentation . . . a masterpiece . . . a technically remarkable work, as sharp as a blade. . . . Molly Keane is a mistress of wicked comedy.” —Vogue

“A witty, black comedy of manners, Good Behaviour is a memorable novel by an Irish writer whose only equal is Elizabeth Bowen.” —The Bookseller
