*The secret history

£9.99

THE BESTSELLER THAT DEFINED AN AGE

‘Everything, somehow, fit together; some sly and benevolent Providence was revealing itself by degrees and I felt myself trembling on the brink of a fabulous discovery, as though any morning it was all going to come together—my future, my past, the whole of my life—and I was going to sit up in bed like a thunderbolt and say oh! oh! oh!’

Under the influence of a charismatic classics professor, a group of clever, eccentric misfits at a New England college discover a way of thought and life a world away from their banal contemporaries. But their search for the transcendent leads them down a dangerous path, beyond human constructs of morality.

‘Haunting, compelling and brilliant’ The Times

‘Irresistible and seductive’ Guardian

‘Enthralling… Forceful, cerebral and impeccably controlled’ New York Times
