I am delighted to introduce you to Sadie Jones’ The Uninvited Guests, due to be published tomorrow. Set in the early 20th century at a grand country house in the English countryside, Sadie Jones’ remarkable novel takes place over the course of one night. The Torrington family is throwing a birthday party for the twenty-year-old Emerald, but their careful plans are thrown into disarray, and their celebrations take a strange new turn.
Sinister, witty, and packed with surprises, this book is a tour-de-force. Sadie Jones is one of the most brilliant writers of her generation, and this novel showcases her incredible gift: crystalline prose that creates a distinctive world the reader will be reluctant to leave, a world that is rich in period detail, human foible, mystery, and suspense. All of us at Harper are very excited about this gem of a novel.
