VERY COLD PEOPLE by Sarah Manguso received a stunning review from The Guardian. Reviewer Johanna Thomas-Corr raves: “When I finished VERY COLD PEOPLE, I felt my whole body unclench. In the process of reading this creepy coming-of-age tale, I seemed to have trapped a nerve in my shoulder – it’s that tense...VERY COLD PEOPLE is so different from anything else I’ve read that it feels a bit fatuous to compare it to other works of fiction. We often talk about writers getting under the skin of their characters, but Manguso has a forensic interest in hair follicles, rashes, effluvia and infected cuts…It’s a masterclass in unease. I must confess that I was relieved when the novel was over but it was so skillful, so strange and so unique that I suspect it will stay with me for a very long time.” Hogarth published the novel February 8, 2022.
