THE TOP TEN BESTSELLER
LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE 2022

A PAGE-TURNING SUMMERTIME READ FOR FANS OF WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING AND LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE

On a perfect August morning, Elle Bishop heads out for a swim in the pond below 'The Paper Palace' - her family's holiday home in Cape Cod. As she dives beneath the water she relives the passionate encounter she had the night before, against the side of the house that knows all her darkest secrets, while her husband and mother chatted to their guests inside...

So begins a story that unfolds over twenty-four hours and fifty years, as Elle's shocking betrayal leads her to a life-changing decision.

'A beautifully constructed, wonderfully intelligent and beguiling novel, rich with a multitude of pleasures.'
- William Boyd

'It's glorious and gorgeous. I was absolutely immersed and gripped and I'm devastated to have finished it.'
- Marian Keyes

'It's been ages since I was so absorbed in a contemporary novel. I loved it.'
- Nick Hornby

'In rich and sensuous prose, Cowley Heller, cracks open the human heart and exposes her character's choices: the paths not taken and the devastating consequences. I smelled the old cabins and the backwoods, felt the pond water lapping around my ankles, experienced the love and loss of family. A perceptive and powerful story which will stay with me for a long time.'
- Claire Fuller, author of Unsettled Ground

'Tightly woven and immediate, The Paper Palace takes us deep into a vivid summer landscape, a family, and a private, longstanding love story, and holds us there from start to finish.'
- Meg Wolitzer, New York Times bestselling author of The Wife and The Female Persuasion

'I can't think of a more brilliant debut than The Paper Palace. Enticing, assured and multi-layered, it introduces a major new voice in American fiction . . . A marvel.'
- Cressida Connolly

'Absolutely phenomenal novel - dazzling writing and utterly addictive. Read it.'
- Rosamund Lupton

'It felt as if I read The Paper Palace in one go. It was completely immersive, and shocking, and utterly alive. I loved it.'
