    Jane Harris è già nota per il suo esordio, The Observations (Le osservazioni), un romanzo che molti anni fa entrò nella mia wishlist grazie a questa recensione. Ottenuto poi grazie ad uno scambio su aNobii, il libro rimase in libreria per un po', fino a che lo scorso dicembre non arrivò il suo momento e devo dire di averlo apprezzato molto, motivo per cui la scorsa estate decisi di acquistare il nuovo romanzo Gillespie and I.

    . .

    Very good. A page turner in spite of not very much happening. A supremely unreliable narrator.

    A terrific narrative voice -so vivid, I had no idea who I should believe (I'm still unsure).
