‘The latest literary sensation ... It has people in a word-of-mouth frenzy I've not seen since Gone Girl ... De Vigan's description of a close female friendship is a compulsive but agonising read’ TELEGRAPH MAGAZINE
‘All writing is constructed on shifting sands, but I’ve never read a book that makes the complex relationship between reality and fiction both as visible, and at the same time so opaque, as here. I was captivated. Combining the allure of Gone Girl with the sophistication of literary fiction, Based on a True Story is a creepy but unapologetically clever psychological thriller that also aces the Bechdel test’ INDEPENDENT
‘A sophisticated modern take on an old trope’ EVENING STANDARD
