Review

"One of the most daringly original and entertaining pieces of fiction I've ever read" (Observer)

"Mesmerising" (New Yorker)

"Brilliant…absorbing, thought-provoking" (Evening Standard)

"Rachel Cusk breaks all the rules... Outline captivates" (Independent)

"If life were fair, Rachel Cusk would win every prize going for Outline " (Julie Myerson Observer)

"Winter bouquets should be offered to the clever and stylish Rachel Cusk: her novel Outline is smoothly accomplished, and fascinating both on the surface and in its depths" (Hilary Mantel Guardian)

"Outline succeeds powerfully. Among other things, it gets a great variety of human beings down on to the page with both immediacy and depth; an elemental pleasure that makes the book as gripping to read as a thriller… A stellar accomplishment" (James Lasdun Guardian)

"A clever thought experiment that’s far too readable ever to feel like one" (Sunday Times)

"A piece of work of great beauty and ambition. Narratives are smoothed, as if by translation and retranslation, into their simplest, barest elements: parents, children, divorces, cakes, dresses, dogs. These elements then build, layer on layer, to form the most complex and exquisitely detailed patterns, swirling and whirling, wheels within wheels" (London Review of Books)

"Cool but compelling, narrow in focus perhaps, but deep in thought" (Scotsman) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
