Under The Skin Summary

Under The Skin by Michel Faber

With an introduction by David Mitchell

Isserley spends most of her time driving. But why is she so interested in picking up hitchhikers? And why are they always male, well-built and alone?

An utterly unpredictable and macabre mystery, Under the Skin is a genre-defying masterpiece.

Under The Skin Reviews

A wonderful book - painful, lyrical, frightening, brilliant . . . I couldn't put it down -- Kate Atkinson
One of the best-orchestrated reveals in modern British fiction . . . Michel Faber is a masterly writer -- David Mitchell
Profound and disturbing . . . Faber writes superbly * * Sunday Times * *
This is a man who could give Conrad a run at writing the perfect sentence * * Guardian * *
Teases and prods the reader up a plethora of literary blind alleys before hauling them screaming towards its final, thrilling destination * * Daily Telegraph * *
Strange, adept, original . . . Would that more first novels were as adventurous or as funky and daring in their conception * * Independent on Sunday * *
A brilliantly compressed drama of threat and ambiguity . . . Recalling writers such as Jim Crace and Russell Hoban, Under the Skin, like Faber's short stories, is an extremely assured and imaginative work * * Observer * *
Astonishingly, this is Michel Faber's first novel. It is audacious, fascinating, repellent and quite unlike anything I have ever read * * Mail on Sunday * *
Under the Skin is a shocking and fantastical take on modern humanity * * The Week * *
The fantastic is so nicely played against the day-to-day that one feels the strangeness of both . . . A remarkable novel * * New York Times * *
