The Paying Guests has debuted at no. 3 in the Sunday Times bestseller list this week – and continues to receive fabulous reviews since publication on August 28. Here are just a selection:
‘As in every Waters novel you will be hooked within a page . . . The Paying Guests is the apotheosis of her talent; at least for now. I have tried and failed to find a single negative thing to say about it.’ Charlotte Mendelson, Financial Times
‘Absolutely brilliant’ Jacqueline Wilson, Sunday Times
‘A lot of work must have gone into writing this novel but it is no labour at all to devour’ Lionel Shriver, New Statesman
‘Brilliantly involving . . . juicy, beautifully observed’ Metro
‘A stay-up-all-night page-turner’ Glamour
‘Masterly . . . Waters is a cracking storyteller’ Tatler
Stylist Exclusive Event – Thursday 28th August
Stylist Book Club in association with Virago are delighted to present an evening with Sarah Waters, held in the Grand Ballroom at The Rosewood Hotel (http://www.rosewoodhotels.com/en/london). The Rosewood Hotel is the former headquarters of Pearl Assurance, and co-incidentally is the very building where Sarah’s character Leonard works in The Paying Guests, and is next door to the site of the old Holborn Empire, where her characters Frances and Christina venture together for an afternoon at the music hall.
For tickets to this exclusive event visit www.stylist.co.uk/bookclubaugust
Ticket-holders will receive a limited edition, not-for-sale copy of The Paying Guests before the event and a signed first edition of the hardback on the night, plus the opportunity to hear Sarah in conversation with Stylist Publisher, Glenda Marchant.
Based on the lost 1928 supernatural murder-mystery novel, The Frozen Scream tells the chilling tale of a group who find themselves stranded at an abandoned lodge in the depths of winter. Forced to entertain themselves, they begin to tell the tale of Jack Frost, the most terrifying of the Frost Giants. But as the story takes a shocking twist, they discover they should have heeded the early warnings to ‘beware the ice’.
Surrounded by mystery and intrigue, the original novel was quick to receive critical acclaim but fell out of favour when a series of mysterious deaths led to the belief that the novel was cursed. Undeterred by these conspiracy theories, Olivier-award winning entertainer Christopher Green (Tina C, Ida Barr, Office Party) and one of the UK's best-selling novelists, Sarah Waters (Tipping the Velvet, The Little Stranger) bring this largely unread work to the stage in an adaptation that will send shivers down your spine this winter. But is everything as it seems?
