Publisher Description

DECEMBER 2022 READ WITH JENNA BOOK CLUB PICK INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • A contemporary literary classic and "an accomplished psychological thriller ... absolutely chilling" (Village Voice), from the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Goldfinch.

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.

“A remarkably powerful novel [and] a ferociously well-paced entertainment.... Forceful, cerebral, and impeccably controlled.” —The New York Times

A Rare Good Read

Mesmerized me for an entire weekend...a shadowy mystery that reminds me of The Magus, My Cousin Rachael..the characters, the story...one of those books to read over and over.

AMAZING

I found this book through a recommendation from a blog, it took a while for me to purchase the book, but boy, it was definitely worth it. The author put their heart into this book, making you feel as if the narrator, Richard, was literally talking to you and making you feel as if you're living every detail. It's such an amazing book, with rich words, and every sentence you read makes you want to read more and more. I couldn't take my eyes of my phone while reading this. This is a MUST GET! I loved it, and I know that you will too.
