This is an auction for THE RED HOUSE by Mark Haddon.

"Surprising and deeply moving . . . the set-up ensures that there will be revelations, twists and shifts in the family dynamic . . . sustaining suspense . . . while enriching the developing relationships among people . . . organic rather than contrived, the characters convincing throughout, the tone compassionate and the writing wise. A novel to savour."
- a *** starred *** review in Kirkus Reviews (US)

"Absorbing . . . Even if you don’t see your relatives in these pages, you’ll learn to appreciate their ungainly efforts to reach out and maintain those old filial bonds. What holds our interest is Haddon’s extraordinary sympathy, his ability to reveal what stirs these people beneath their congenial holiday faces, a brilliant portrayal of the asymmetric nature of resentment within families . . . But it’s Hardon’s peculiar structure that raises this family drama to something exceptional. He’s perfected a constantly shifting perspective that keeps our sympathies from taking root in any one of these characters, the effect is symphonic. Haddon wends a careful path in this novel between the effervescent comedy of quirky families and the bitter tragedy of dysfunctional ones."
- The Washington Post

"The story unfolds from all eight characters’ points of view, a tricky strategy that pays off, letting Haddon dig convincingly into all of the failures, worries and weaknesses that they can’t leave behind."
- Entertainment Weekly
