“Make no mistake: this is a very funny novel.”
“Dale Paul is the archetypal anti-hero of our era & Susan Swan compelling delivers his message.”
– Jane Urquhart

“Susan Swan’s new protagonist, Dale Paul, is a self-obsessed hedge fund guy with a poncy way of speaking and a penchant for playing fast and loose with other people’s money. Yes, he’s terrible but he’s also a terrific character and the reason you will want to keep turning the pages on Swan’s latest novel, The Dead Celebrities Club.”

“A must read for the dead pool generation.”

– KJ Mullins

“Susan Swan’s salacious new novel, THE DEAD CELEBRITIES CLUB, is a tale of greed, hubris and fraud–and the fallout that follows. In other words, it’s a financial fable worthy of the age.”
“Most of us are waiting for Trump to go to prison… And The Dead Celebrities Club could be a trailer for that movie.”
– Marni Jackson
