Product description

Review

'What begins as a sly fable about frustrated desire evolves into a genuinely scary novel about possession and insanity. Hypnotic, disturbing, and written with such unerring confidence you believe every word.' (Bret Easton Ellis) 'The power of this sly little novel lies in its ability to do your thinking for you. It rationalises, spooks and psychoanalyses to divert the reading brain while sliding its icicle shard into the warm, pulpy flesh of your dark desires. And Gran's swift finale is very, very cool.' Helen Brown, Daily Telegraph 'It's deeply scary, blurring as it does, the bounds between everyday life and the completely unthinkable. Just don't read it alone in a house with noisy plumbing.' Fiona Hook, The Times 'Sara Gran's swift, stylish narrative quickly leads to a terrifying place where anything at all might happen.' Mail on Sunday 'Completely gripping, constantly surprising and truly disturbing, it is one of the most powerful books I have read in a long time. That is it about possession is very apt - it is utterly consuming from start to finish.' Zembla Magazine 'I read this brilliant novel in an evening, hooked from the first page.' Uncut --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
