Shriver’s Orange Prize winning We Need to Talk About Kevin has proved one of the most discussed and admired novels of recent years. Her latest, So Much for That – a blistering attack on America’s public health policy – has already become the focus of enthusiasm and debate. Pointed, witty, and strongly characterised, it promises to be one of the novel highlights of the year.

“Many people will like Lionel Shriver’s [new] novel – admirers of gripping and clever contemporary fiction, discerning critics and, if there is any justice, literary prize committees.” – Mark Lawson, The Guardian
