A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK
"Let's not mince words. This is a great book. Truly difficult to put down . . .
it's climax and resolution will not disappoint."
—Lionel Shriver, Washington Post
"Seductively menacing . . .
what makes Osborne's work so compelling is that it's ruthlessly unpredictable."
—NPR's "Fresh Air"
"Beautiful Animals is [Osborne's] most accomplished book so far—a big, clever, crazed beast of a novel."
—Deborah Levy, Financial Times
"A sinister and streamlined entertainment in the tradition of Paul Bowles, Evelyn Waugh, and the early Ian McEwan . . . surprising and dark and excellent."—New York Times
"Extraordinarily acute to human nature."—Akhil Sharma, Newsweek
"Slim but insistent . . . a vivid and feverish portrait of a soul in self-inflicted purgatorio."—Tom Shone, New York Times Book Review
