Description: As her sixteenth birthday unfolds, Isobel Fairfax is pulled into brief time warps and extended periods of omniscience, from the days of the first Fairfax, to the roaring '20s, to World War II, and gradually comes to learn the truth about her strange family and about her mother, whose disappearance is part of the secret at the heart of the nearby forest. At once a fairy tale, a mystery, and a family saga, by turns comic and tragic, Human Croquet is a stunning feat of imagination and storytelling, a novel rich with the disappointments and possibilities every family shares.

"Atkinson writes with enough graceful brilliance to win over even the most intransigent skeptic.... Intelligent, sympathetic, and terribly funny, this is simply a wonderful book". -- The Boston Book Review

"Full of ambiguities and neat surprises, this novel from Britain has a rabbit hole of a story and an omniscient narrator, 16-year-old Isobel Fairfax, with knowledge of both past and future". -- Katharine Weber, The New York Times Book Review

"Kate Atkinson specializes in audacity, which she offers up with irresistible grace. Her combination of manic invention and runaway plot is usually found in science fiction sagas rather than in a literary tour de force of emotional and linguistic complexity". -- San Francisco Chronicle

"A potent and tender novel of many stories, spun by a girl abandoned by her adored mother and raised in a family horror show". -- Boston Sunday Globe

"Atkinson's language -- sometimes giddy, sometimes understated to accommodate the black comedy, occasionally frankly emotional -- is a joy". -- Valerie Sayers, Commonwealth
