‘Mrs. could be the next Big Little Lies.’—Entertainment Weekly
Set on New York City’s Upper East Side, Mrs. follows three women whose paths collide when their children attend the same elite preschool.
A brilliant portrait of love, betrayal, fate and chance, Mrs. marries razor-sharp social critique and page-turning propulsion into an unforgettable tapestry of the way we live in the 21st century.
‘Brilliant. Macy’s tale of three women whose lives intersect gallops to its explosive conclusion. I was dazzled by her ability to see into the very hearts of her fascinating characters; I absolutely loved it.’—Kate Atkinson
‘Deeply moving, hugely entertaining, utterly brilliant. As an observer of human behaviour Macy rivals Tom Wolfe and Edward St. Aubyn. Mrs. is a major novel, and Macy is an essential American voice.’—Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians
‘I love novels that are both rousing and intelligent and Mrs. was just that—a riveting, complex and potent story of money, friendships, and family. Macy masters New York’s Upper East Side because she goes beyond the vanities and delves into its layers, its distinct voices and characters. She puts you in the territory of the well-heeled and shows their heart and soul.’—Kaui Hart Hemmings, author of The Descendants
