From the author of `The Kiss' and `The Binding Chair' comes an intense novel of dark secrets and sexual betrayal.
Will has a good sex life - with the woman he married. So why then is he increasingly plagued by violent erotic fantasies? He's about to lose his grip when he attends a college reunion and there discovers evidence of a past sexual betrayal, one serious enough that it threatens to overpower the present. Hypnotic and beautifully written, this mesmerising novel explores how painful psychological truths long buried within a family can corrupt the present but, through courage and understanding, lead to healing and renewal.
Kathryn Harrison is the author of the novels `The Binding Chair', `Exposure', `A Thousand Orange Trees', and the memoir `The Kiss' , all available from Fourth Estate. She lives in New York with her husband, the novelist Colin Harrison, and their children.
