Product description

Review

`The Intimates manages that all too rare feat of being a deeply psychological character study whilst at the same time playing out as a bonafide page-turner. Excellently paced, insightfully created, and with moments of genuine genius, The Intimates is an opulently written, high concept piece which explores the psychology of human relationships. Mankowski has a timeless style- highly polished and brilliantly evocative.' --A.J. Kirby, author and reviewer for The New York Journal of Books

'A clever conceit and a compelling narrative.' --Edward Stourton, BBC broadcaster, journalist and author.

`A huge accomplishment. With expert prose Mankowski draws the reader into a world where layers of secrets are slowly and skilfully stripped away. Lyrical and yet accessible, with character dynamics to die for.' --Gary Murning, author of `If I Never'

`An intricately wrought and enchanting first novel, The Intimates is a measured, literary piece of work as hauntingly evocative of its setting and characters as Marilynne Robinson's Pulitzer prize winner Housekeeping.' --Abigail Tarttelin, actress and author of `Flick'

'From one of the most exciting young authors on the literary scene, this is a fascinating debut novel where love, ambition and jealousy collide. Described as 'the modern Great Gatsby', this is a glamorous read for the train journey to work.' --Rookie Magazine

'Mankowski's ability to construct and develop his characters is formidable and the execution of this skill adds to the compelling nature of the book. The reader is taken on a journey through a vast array of intensive and moving experiences. Fascinating and compelling, 'The Intimates' is a deep and challenging book.definitely worth a read.' -- The View From Here magazine

'An intoxicating story of a dinner party between old friends set in a glamorous, affluent world that seems to be decaying from within. Rich with thoughtful, self-analyzing dialogue, The Intimates is crying out for dramatization.' -- Culture Magazine

The Intimates has been selected as a key title for Read Regional 2011. --readregional.com
