The international hit that sold half a million copies in
France: a chilling work of fiction--but based on a true
story--about a friendship gone terrifyingly toxic and the
nature of reality.
Overwhelmed by the huge success of her latest novel,
exhausted and suffering from a crippling inability to write,
Delphine meets L.
L. embodies everything Delphine has always secretly admired;
she is a glittering image of feminine sophistication and
spontaneity and she has an uncanny knack of always saying
the right thing. Unusually intuitive, L. senses Delphine's
vulnerability and slowly but deliberately carves herself a
niche in the writer's life. However, as L. makes herself
indispensable to Delphine, the intensity of this unexpected
friendship manifests itself in increasingly sinister ways.
As their lives become more and more entwined, L. threatens
Delphine's identity, both as a writer and as an individual.
This sophisticated psychological thriller skillfully blurs
the line between fact and fiction, reality and artifice.
Delphine de Vigan has crafted a terrifying, insidious,
meta-fictional thriller; a haunting vision of seduction and
betrayal; a book which in its hungering for truth implicates
the reader, too--even as it holds us in its thrall.
