Reviews

If you're in need of a Succession replacement then this tale of a crumbling English dynasty clinging on to the past while coping with the fallout of the 2008 crash is for you. Rothschild is a mischievous narrator and this story is pure pleasure from the word go * Stylist *
Waspish yet generous-hearted, it delights from start to finish * Mail on Sunday *
Rothschild's engaging tale House of Trelawney cleverly satirises an unconventional aristocratic clan who have run into money troubles * Independent Online *
Rothschild ... is a witty, stylish storyteller and her overall message definitely feels timely * Sunday Times *
This is Jilly Cooper territory, with a whiff of Joanna Trollope; a lavish saga about privileged people behaving badly ... Rothschild is a writer of high intelligence, however, and she shakes these dear old tropes up into something more akin to John Lanchester's blistering contemporary satire Capital ... Rothschild teases out the green shoots with skill and humour ... If we take House of Trelawney as a light-hearted state-of-the-nation novel, it says a lot about the dangers of dwelling on past entitlement and the importance of unsentimental realism * The Times *
This slyly comic novel is a great dissection of class and privilege * Red *
Curl up and lose yourself in this hugely entertaining satire of a deeply dysfunctional family of aristocrats desperate to save their crumbling Cornwall home * i paper *
A sparkling satire * Image Magazine *
Rothschild's engaging tale House of Trelawney cleverly satirises an unconventional aristocratic clan who have run into money troubles * independent.co.uk *
