Praise for The Headmaster's Wife

"A truly remarkable novel, I read the second half of "The Headmaster's Wife" with my mouth open, my jaw having dropped at the end of the first half. Thomas Christopher Greene knows how to hook a reader and land him." --Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize winning author of "Empire Falls"

"An accomplished and artful storyteller, Greene has surprises in store as he unspools a plot that becomes as poignant as it is unpredictable." --Wally Lamb, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Hour I First Believed"

"I devoured this book. It has all the hooks - a mystery, a marriage, an investigation, a loss, a close-up of a society I'm not privy to - and yet, at its heart, there are unexpected love stories embedded within. Thomas Christopher Greene is a wonderfully accomplished novelist, and "The Headmaster's Wife" is both psychologically complex and wickedly fast-paced." -- Julianna Baggott, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Pure"

Praise for Envious Moon:

"A book as incandescent as it is disturbing... This richly detailed novel, its tone gentle but heavy with foreboding, is a powerful tale of chance, love, loss and redemption." -"Publishers Weekly"

"A stark modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet...but Shakespeare as reinterpreted by Greene still has the power to shock." --"Kirkus"

Praise for I'll Never Be Long Gone:

"Moving... Greene's evocative descriptions of nature, food and love infuse this novel with sensuality and a nostalgia-tinged melancholy... Careful[ly] consider[s] of the burden, and blessing, of legacy." -- "Publishers Weekly"

"Poetic descriptions of [Greene's] native New England and... sumptuous accounts of cooking and cuisine season an otherwise stale tale of loss, legacy, and love." -"Booklist"

"Greene makes us see these things so clearly that they seem like sensual daydreams right there on the page." --"Arizona Republic"

Praise for Mirror Lake:

Praise for The Headmaster's Wife
"Nothing is what it appears in this brilliant story of a life gone awry... The author's true intentions make this tale even more remarkable, for the book is, at its core, a trenchant examination of one family's terrible loss and how the aftermath of tragedy can make or break a person's soul." -Publishers Weekly"Greene has created a brilliant, harrowing novel depicting the spectacular unraveling of a once distinguished and proudly successful man. He has also conceived one of the most convincingly drawn unreliable narrators that readers may ever meet, a character recalling the creations of Edgar Allan Poe... This is a riveting psychological novel about loss and the terrible mistakes and compromises one can make in love and marriage. Essential for fans of literary fiction." -Library Journal, starred review

Praise for The Headmaster's Wife"A tightly woven, atmospheric thriller about a New England academic whose life goes off the rails." --"People""Part of a grand literary tradition... But literary overtones notwithstanding, Greene's plot has the tight, relentless pacing of a fine detective novel... Deeply felt... and utterly absorbing." -"Washington Post
""The Headmaster's Wife had me hooked from page one... [it] kept me compulsively turning pages, attempting (and failing) to guess what would happen next... The Headmaster's Wife explores how we create various versions of ourselves based on situations, needs, and instincts. Sometimes, shedding a figurative skin and inhabiting a new one is the only way to move forward in a world where so much is outside of our control. While that's something I hope most readers relate to in theory more than experience, this wise, tender, and gracefully executed literary thriller will no doubt bewitch you too." --"Redbook""Thomas Christopher Greene's haunting tale tracks the unraveling of a marriage. It starts, eerily, with a naked man's arrest in New York City's Central Park, then twists back in time through love, grief, betrayal, and love again." -"Good Housekeeping
""A layered story of love, unbearable loss and grief." -Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"Greene's deft and nimble hand make the story itself a guiltless pleasure to read." -Denver Post
"What seems to be a deceptively simple story about the headmaster of a New England boarding school and his wife, facing late middle age and growing apart over a difference of opinion about their teenage son, morphed into a haunting, mysterious page-turner... A meditation on longing in all of life's stages, a literary mystery, and a novel with much for book clubs to untangle." -Concord Monitor"Greene's genre-bending novel of madness and despair evokes both the predatory lasciviousness of Nabokov's classic, "Lolita," and the anxious ambiguity of Gillian Flynn's contemporary
