“It’s exhilarating to encounter such unrestrained vehemence in a work by this controlled, intellectual author. Messud’s previous novels, albeit extraordinarily intelligent and well-crafted, are characterized by rationed or distant emotion. “The Woman Upstairs” is utterly different — its language urgent, its conflicts outsize and unmooring, its mood incendiary. This psychologically charged story feels like a liberation.” 
—Liesl Schillinger on ‘The Woman Upstairs,’ by Claire Messud - NYTimes.com
This book is so, so, so good. Read it.
