About this title

Synopsis:

The London Times Literary Supplement has called Thomas Berger "one of the century's most important writers."Zoland Books is proud to reissue Neighbors, a timeless parable of suburban paranoia, and his most acclaimed novel after Little Big Man. In Neighbors, suburban regular-guy Earl Keese confronts the yawning pit of chaos in the persons of Harry and Ramona, a younger couple who have just moved into the only other house on their dead-end street.

Ramona is alternately seductive and treacherous, Harry by turns cajoling and threatening, and their behavior, to Earl's way of thinking, increasingly dangerous and bizarre. Trouble is, no one, from his boozy wife, Enid, to his beloved daughter Elaine, to the circle of supposed friends to whom he appeals for help, will see things Earl's way.
