Now a major motion picture starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Amy Adams, and directed by Tom Ford. Based on the novel Tony and Susan.
Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband, Edward Sheffield. One day, comfortable in her home and her second marriage, she receives, entirely out of the blue, a parcel containing the manuscript of her ex-husband’s first novel. She was always his best critic, he says.
As Susan reads, she is drawn into the life of his fictional character Tony Hastings, a math professor who is driving his family to their summer house in Maine. As the Hastings family’s ordinary, civilized lives are disastrously, violently sent off course, Susan is plunged into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her and driven to name the fear that gnaws at her future and will change her life. Nocturnal Animals is a dazzling achievement: simultaneously a riveting portrayal of the experience of reading and a tautly written, page-turning thriller.About the Author:
