First up: the setting. Just to die for. Reading this novel is like escaping on the most glorious holiday of sand, swims and summer romance. I just want to live in the novel! It’s gorgeous. But the story – with its twists and turns is gripping as it is heartfelt. The author has managed to create the perfect summer novel – one that’s escapist and glorious but clever and immaculately executed too. A masterly debut from the woman behind so many of HBOs hit dramas. This MUST be turned into a film – just too delicious not to.

What the Critics are Saying

Glorious and gorgeous. I was absolutely immersed and gripped and I'm devastated to have finished it

Marian Keyes

A beautifully constructed, wonderfully intelligent and beguiling novel, rich with a multitude of pleasures

William Boyd

Beautifully written, richly compelling, The Paper Palace is as dark and uncompromising as it is tender and lyrical. Here is a love triangle that keeps you turning the pages, a vivid evocation of place, and an exploration of the one of the most unsettling of secrets

Rachel Joyce

I can't think of a more brilliant debut than The Paper Palace. Enticing, assured and multi-layered, it introduces a major new voice in American fiction . . . A marvel
