Praise For Crossways…
The San Francisco Chronicle
"Hypnotic . . . unsettling . . . a combination domestic drama and psychological thriller."
"Sheila Kohler's best yet . . . exquisitely written and devastating in its depiction of a 'superior' family in a profound state of crisis."
– Patrick McGrath, author of Port Mungo and Spider
"Over Sheila Kohler's lushly erotic South Africa falls the shadow of a sadist and psychopath, handsome, heartless, and disturbingly real."
–J.M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize-winning author of Disgrace
"Compelling and beautifully nuanced . . . a story gloriously imagined."
–Elizabeth Strout, author of Amy and Isabelle
