Description

Donna Tartt ’s The Secret History is a story of two parts; the chain of events that led to the death of a classmate – and what happened next.

‘What we did was terrible, but still I don’t think any of us were bad, exactly; chalk it up to weakness on my part, hubris on Henry’s, too much Greek prose composition – whatever you like.’

Under the influence of their charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at an elite New England college discover a way of thinking and living that is a world away from the humdrum existence of their contemporaries. But when they go beyond the boundaries of morality, their lives are changed profoundly and for ever.

‘A haunting, compelling, and brilliant piece of fiction . . . Packed with literary allusion and told with a sophistication and texture’ The Times
