Review

Spellbinding . . . A seductive and arresting coming-of-age story hinged on Charles Manson, told in sentences at times so finely wrought they could almost be worn as jewelry . . . [Emma] Cline gorgeously maps the topography of one loneliness-ravaged adolescent heart. She gives us the fictional truth of a girl chasing danger beyond her comprehension, in a Summer of Longing and Loss. The New York Times Book Review

[
The Girls reimagines] the American novel . . . Like Mary Gaitskill s Veronica or Lorrie Moore s Who Will Run the Frog Hospital?, The Girls captures a defining friendship in its full humanity with a touch of rock-memoir, tell-it-like-it-really-was attitude. Vogue

Debut novels like this are rare, indeed. . . . The most remarkable quality of this novel is Cline s ability to articulate the anxieties of adolescence in language that s gorgeously poetic without mangling the authenticity of a teenager s consciousness. The adult s melancholy reflection and the girl s swelling impetuousness are flawlessly braided together. . . . For a story that traffics in the lurid notoriety of the Manson murders,
The Girls is an extraordinary act of restraint. With the maturity of a writer twice her age, Cline has written a wise novel that s never showy: a quiet, seething confession of yearning and terror. The Washington Post

Outstanding . . . Cline s novel is an astonishing work of imagination remarkably atmospheric, preternaturally intelligent, and brutally feminist. . . . Cline painstakingly destroys the separation between art and faithful representation to create something new, wonderful, and disorienting.
The Boston Globe

Finely intelligent, often superbly written, with flashingly brilliant sentences, . . . Cline s first novel,
The Girls, is a song of innocence and experience. . . . In another way, though, Cline s novel is itself a complicated mixture of freshness and worldly sophistication. . . . At her frequent best, Cline sees the world exactly and generously. On every other page, it seems, there is something remarkable an immaculate phrase, a boldly modifying adverb, a metaphor or simile that makes a sudden, electric connection between its poles. . . . Much of this has to do with Cline s ability to look again, like a painter, and see (or sense) things better than most of us do. The New Yorker

Breathtaking . . . So accomplished that it s hard to believe it s a debut. Cline s powerful characters linger long after the final page.
Entertainment Weekly (Summer Must List)

A mesmerizing and sympathetic portrait of teen girls.
People (Summer s Best Books)

Cline s exquisite set pieces are the equal of her intricate unwinding of Evie s emotions
. . . . The Girls isn t a Wikipedia novel, it s not one of those historical novels that congratulates the present on its improvements over the past, and it doesn t impose today s ideas on the old days. As the smartphone-era frame around Evie s story implies, Cline is interested in the Manson chapter for the way it amplifies the novel s traditional concerns. Pastoral, marriage plot, crime story the novel of the cult has it all. You wonder why more people don t write them. New York Magazine

Hypnotizing . . . [Cline s] eagle-eyed take on the churnings and pitfalls of adolescence longing to be wanted, feeling seen, getting discarded rarely misses its mark. In truth, it s this aspect of
The Girls . . . that stays with us after Evie s whirlwind story concludes. San Francisco Chronicle

Gorgeous, disquieting, and really, reall --San Francisco Chronicle
