The Secret History by Donna Tartt

This novel tells the story of a group of classics students at an elite American college. Richard Papen recalls his years as an impressionable student amongst this gilded group who are cerebral, obsessive and finally murderous. While Tartt elaborates the style and tone of this favoured world with chilling control, the charm and individuality of each member of the group is firmly established.
Donna Tartt was born in Mississippi.
