A tour de force coming-of-age debut that traces the effect of a murder on three Harvard undergrads and their adult lives.

Within the gothic halls and tailored yards of Harvard, student life teems with excitement as graduation looms near. Dreaming of the possibilities their newfound freedom will offer, they never fathom that one of their privileged own would be left behind forever.

When a senior is found murdered on campus, her death becomes an immediate and shocking enigma. The handsome and charismatic master Rufus Storrow is a suspect, and there’s talk of a jealous lover’s spat gone horrifically wrong. As a role model among students and a faculty favorite, the possibility of his guilt is baffling. Moreover, Georgia, Charlie, and Alice are all connected to both the victim and professor in some way, and though they have an idea who the murderer may be, none can speak confidently to the truth.

A compulsively readable novel about promise, disappointment, and the truths we hide from one another, Bradstreet Gate is an accomplished and broadly appealing debut. Elements of Donna Tartt’s The Secret History meet Meg Wolitzer’s The Interestings in a novel that launches the career of an extraordinary new writer.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A scandal with a shiny tabloid surface—murder on an elite college campus—haunts the friends and enemies of the victim and her accused, as they struggle to adjust to adulthood outside the university gates. Robin Kirman captures the moral hazards of assessing guilt and determining punishment in her intelligent, compulsively readable debut.”

    Jonathan Dee, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of The Privileges

  • “Smart, sly, and compulsively readable, Robin Kirman’s brilliant debut not only heralds the start of an auspicious career, it shows that Kirman—whose writing calls to mind Donna Tartt—has already arrived.”

    Molly Antopol, National Book Award longlisted author of The UnAmericans

  • Bradstreet Gate is an unputdownable page-turner. With confident wit and sterling prose, Robin Kirman delivers an inspired takedown of the poisonous Ivy League…a deeply satisfying read and Robin Kirman is a writer of true promise.”

    Amber Dermont, New York Times bestselling author of The Starboard Sea

  • “Robin Kirman’s eye for detail is as thrilling as her gifts for plot and suspense. An exciting debut from a prodigious talent.”

    Elisa Albert, author of After Birth

  • “A deftly-plotted, unputdownable exploration into ambition’s darker side.”

    Courtney Maum, author of I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You

  • “A spectacular debut. With the murder at its center that spills into the most cloistered corners of scholastic life, I was reminded of Donna Tartt’s The Secret History–but with the swiftly moving, intricate plot of Gone Girl…Bradstreet Gate is entrancing, and it announces the arrival of a tremendous new literary talent.”

    Alena Graedon, author of The Word Exchange

  • “In a novel as compelling as it is complex, as sexy as it is smart, Robin Kirman strikes straight at life’s most important questions—of guilt and forgiveness, the responsibility we have to others—and brings to life one of fiction’s great characters, a man whose peculiar allure is so precisely drawn that I found myself drawn to him as powerfully as the students whose lives he forever alters.”

    Josh Weil, author of The Great Glass Sea

  • An Amazon Best Book of the Month of July 2015 in Fiction
