Customer Review

on 26 August 2009
Jenn Ashworth succeeds in doing what most authors only dream about. She has written a literary novel that also has wide popular appeal. A Kind of Intimacy is a quality read. Ashworth's prose never misses a beat or strikes a false note and her plot leaves the reader breathless. Few writers are brave enough to go into a place as dark and dangerous as the mind of Annie, the first person narrator of A Kind of Intimacy. Annie is one of the most convincing portraits of psycho-pathology in recent fiction. She compares favourably to Frederick Clegg in Fowles's The Collector - and the calm logic of her self-justification is even more chilling. Final advice, brace yourself for the ending. The gripping conclusion of this Hitchcockian novel - tantalisingly drawn out over the final 60 pages - is one of the great white knuckle rides of recent literature.
