Reviewing her last novel, The Woman Upstairs, Joanna Briscoe remarked that “Claire Messud should achieve literary giant status before too long” and her new novel may just be the book to propel her towards that exalted status. The Burning Girl, is a bracing and hypnotic portrait of the complexities of female friendship. Compact, compelling, and ferociously sad, the novel is at once a story about childhood, friendship and community, and a complex examination of the stories we tell ourselves about childhood and friendship. ForClaire Messud, literary greatness beckons.
