The heat ripples into sentences dripping with delicious detail ... Its nod to the classics makes Demi-Gods comparable to Donna Tartt's The Secret History. As does the feeling of a new and important author arriving * Financial Times *
Unsettling and compulsive, Demi-Gods is a fearless novel and Eliza Robertson a daring new novelist * John Boyne, author of The Heart's Invisible Furies *
Poetic, observant, tragic, gut-churning ... Like the deviant relationship at the novel's centre, there is something inescapable about Demi-Gods, so that by the end you feel as though you've been inches underwater, unable to surface, but desperate to * D. W. Wilson *
Her skill as a writer is beyond question: every sentence feels crafted and she evokes America in the 1950s with such care that it seems to swim before the reader's eyes like a heat haze * Sunday Times *
A book riddled with beauty - the way sunlight can transform a body, the depth of a moth's wings, the way a girl's body can beat to the same rhythm as the sea ... This novel will sneak under your skin * Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You *
Dark and kinky with disturbingly good prose ... Elena Ferrante-esque * Metro *
Demi-Gods combines the unnerving, naked female candour of Elena Ferrante's My Brilliant Friend with a darkened menace worthy of German director Michael Haneke * Zsuzsi Gartner, author of Better Living Through Plastic Explosives *
A feat of subtlety and daring ... Robertson portrays complex relationships with breathtaking precision and compassion, revealing the human bonds that protect, falter, survive and heal. I absolutely love this novel * Alison MacLeod, author of All the Beloved Ghosts *
A young writer who succeeds in imagining the world afresh * Independent *
A brutally beautiful coming-of-age story that sings with language as lovely, wild, and full of ominous longing as the young woman at its center * Robin Wasserman, author of Girls on Fire *
