Product description

Review

Praise for ‘The Post-Birthday World’:

‘Those of us who rave about the dash and dare of Lionel Shriver’s fiction can rejoice that ‘The Post-Birthday World’, a ‘Sliding Doors’-style joint tale of alternative loves and lives, will garner the attention she always deserves.’
Independent

‘There is an impressive freshness in her treatment. The writing is intelligent, the characterisation thoughtful, the insights into love, sex and snooker sharp…Shriver confirms her reputation as an original talent’.
Mail on Sunday

‘The Post-Birthday World is exceptionally well written and the characters fully formed.’ Irish Sunday Independent

‘Shriver gives us another passionate novel…Like Sliding Doors, the tale splits into two, following the dramatic turns of each choice. Brilliant.’
Cosmopolitan

‘It's another domestic drama with a compelling twist…the power struggle between the sexes is spot-on. Shriver chalks her narrative cue with relish and, once the story gets underway, it's hard to take your eyes off the green baize.’
Tatler

‘’The Post-Birthday World’ is Lionel Shriver’s forthcoming work about the dilemmas of love – a must if you were gripped by ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’.’
Harper’s Bazaar
