In The Exhibitionist Mendelson brings a forensic eye to family dynamics, laying bare the agonies of rage, frustration and longing that lie just beneath the surface of domestic life. The result is a devastating treat of a novel: funny, furious, dark and delicious
It takes the most ferocious intelligence, skill, and a deep reservoir of sadness to write a novel as funny as this. I adored it
A delicious, heartbreaking family snapshot about thwarted ambition, misplaced loyalty and good and bad love. Secrets abound. Fabulously written and utterly compelling
Mendelson is a master at family drama, and plots don’t get much more dramatic than this . . . Exhilarating
