'One of the wittiest books about family life ever written' Guardian

'A hilarious, remarkable and beautiful book' Jeffrey Eugenides

'A blackly funny and beautifully written novel' Sunday Times
Suburban New England, and the Hood family are about to wish they'd stayed home....

1973 - 'The last year of the sixties' as the author describes it. Amidst the worst storm for 30 years the local families gather for a party - the highlight of which is the wife-swapping 'key game' - and for two couples this supposedly harmless piece of liberal-minded entertainment spells permanent disaster.
Astutely acerbic, painfully funny, The Ice Storm is an astonishing novel of the decade that taste forgot.

MEDIA REVIEWS
THE ICE STORM is one of the wittiest books about family life ever written * THE GUARDIAN *
A huge '70s nostalgia trip, a litany of kitsch, a mountain of memorabilia as the backdrop to a bitter-sweet story of suburban America. * TIME OUT *
With intelligence, restraint, and without sentimentality, Rick Moody has created a moving portrait of a nuclear family meltdown. A hilarious, remarkable and beautiful book * Jeffrey Eugenides author of THE VIRGIN SUICIDES *
A blackly funny and beautifully written novel. * SUNDAY TIMES *
