About this title


A riveting account of sexual addiction and murder is set inside the mind of a violent sex offender now in his twenty-third year of confinement, as told to a nineteen-year-old college girl, presently preying on a young boy herself, with whom he corresponds. 30,000 first printing.


A novel that shines a flashlight under the bed of suburban perversity. A. M. Homes, whom the N.Y. Times Book Review calls "exhilaratingly perverse," lures us into a Nabokovian world where characters both repellent and seductive conduct forays into the dark limits of their obsessions.
