Fantastic press for Janet Malcolm’s Forty-One False Starts

Forty-One False Starts is a brilliant collection of essays from one of the world’s great writers of literary non-fiction. Janet Malcolm, writes David Lehman in the Boston Globe, ‘is among the most intellectually provocative of authors, able to turn epiphanies of perception into explosions of insight.’

The New Republic says that Forty-One False Starts ‘reminds just how fun [Janet Malcolm’s] not-niceness can be’. Read some terrific reviews from Slate and the LA Times. Helen Garner’s brilliant introduction to the book can be read here, while Alice Gregory ranks Janet Malcolm’s books in order from best to worst over here.

Forty-One False Starts is available in bookshops and from our website.
