Here's what you say about us...

Ellen Feldman, a 2009 Guggenheim Fellow, is the author of The Boy Who Loved Anne Frank, Scottsboro, which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction, and Next To Love. She lives in New York City with her husband.

Not only is the writing atmospheric and subtle, it has great psychological tension. A compelling and poignant Cold War novel
Nigel Farndale, author of THE BLASPHEMER

Ellen Feldman's masterful, unforgettable portrayal of a marriage during the Cold War evokes the era in beautiful but charged prose.
The paranoia of the times crackles on the page as secrets are kept and Nell Benjamin, the narrator, is unwittingly caught in moral quandaries of the 1950s.
A captivating work of storytelling that will keep you up late at night, The Unwitting is a timely, must-read novel that reminds us the past continues to haunt
Ann Weisgarber, author of THE PROMISE

The ideal novel for reading in a sunny garden is 50/50 bend of cool, intelligent writing and breakneck pace . . . I shall reveal no more. Deckchair heaven (my highest praise).
