The Toronto Star review

The Toronto Star says: “Elliott Holt’s output prior to this terrific debut consisted of a number of short stories, one of which won the prestigious Pushcart Prize in 2011. For years she worked as a copywriter in glamour spots such as New York, London and Moscow. And while ad agencies rarely function as farm teams for the literary majors, the witty, suspenseful intelligence of You Are One of Them suggests Holt has what it takes to join the handful of successful novelists — Don DeLillo, Salman Rushdie and Dorothy L. Sayers among them — who proved themselves exceptions to the rule.”
