Best-selling author Zoe Heller has followed up the critical and commercial success of Notes on a Scandal with another tour-de-force on the meaning of faith, belief, and trust: The Believers. Tragic and comic, witty and intense, The Believers is the story of a dysfunctional family forced by tragedy to confront their own personal demons. In the vein of Claire Messud and Zadie Smith, Zoe Heller has written that rare novel that tackles the big ideas without sacrificing page-turning readability.

Zoë Heller has written three darkly comic novels: The Believers, Notes on a Scandal (shortlisted for the 2003 Man Booker Prize) and Everything You Know. The 2006 film adaptation of her bestselling novel Notes on a Scandal, starring Cate Blanchett and Judi Dench, received four Oscar nominations. Zoë Heller writes a column for the Daily Telegraph and was Columnist of the Year for 2002.

When Audrey makes a devastating discovery about her husband, New York radial lawyer Joel Litvinoff, she is forced to re-examine everything she thought she knew about their forty- year marriage. Joel’s children will soon have to come to terms with this unsettling secret themselves, but for the meantime, they are trying tot cope with their own dilemmas.

Rosa, a disillusioned revolutionary, is grappling with a new found attachment to Orthodox Judasism. Karla, an unhappily married social worker, is falling in love with an unlikely suitor at the hospital where she works. Adopted brother Lenny is back on drugs again.

In the course of battling their own demons and each other, every member of the family is called upon to decide what – if anything – they still believe in.

‘One of the outstanding novels of the year’ — Peter Kemp, Sunday Times

‘One of only two British novelists whose work you wouldn’t want to miss’ — David Hare, Guardian, Books of the Year

‘A dark beautiful drama. Heller has got the stuff we look for in our best novelists: the sentences, the constant drift towards truth’ — Joseph O’Neill, Guardian, Books of the Year

‘[Zoe Heller] is an extraordinarily entertaining writer, and this novel showcases her copious gifts, including a scathing, Waugh-like wit.'— New York Times
