Waterstones Says

The author of the smash hit bestseller You delivers a scathing thriller set in the world of privileged writers that mixes her trademark black comedy with page-turning twists and turns.

Joe Goldberg is ready for a change. Instead of selling books, he's writing them. And he's off to a good start.

Glenn Shoddy, an acclaimed literary author, recognizes Joe's genius and invites him to join a tight-knit writing fellowship at Harvard. Finally, Joe will be in a place where talent matters more than pedigree . . . where intellect is the great equalizer and anything is possible.

Even happy endings. Or so he thinks, until he meets his already-published, already-distinguished peers, who all seem to be cut from the same privileged cloth.

Thankfully, Wonder enters the picture. They have so much in common. No college degrees, no pretensions, no stories from prep school or grad school. Just a love for literature. If only Wonder could commit herself to the writing life they could be those rare literary soulmates who never fall prey to their demons. There is so much they're up against, but Joe has faith in Wonder. He will sacrifice his art for hers. And if he has to, he will kill her darlings for her.

With her trademark satirical, biting wit, Caroline Kepnes explores why vulnerable people bring out the worst in others as Joe sets out to make this small, elite world a fairer place. And if a little crimson runs in the streets of Cambridge . . . who can blame him? Love doesn't conquer all. Often, it needs a little push.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Caroline Kepnes and the You series:   ‘Kepnes gleefully portrays the most back-stabbing seminar yet, dropping literary names with abandon as she twists the plot . . . Joe Goldberg might be a narcissistic, manipulative, murderous, utterly unreliable narrator, but he's damn entertaining’ -- Kirkus Review (starred review) ‘Within this intensity, [Joe's] snark-laden observations about ego, love, and loyalty ring true’ -- Booklist ‘Hypnotic and scary . . . totally original’ -- Stephen King ‘I will read anything she writes. . . . One of the smartest, most insightful writers out there’ -- Nicola Yoon ‘Delicious . . . It's Kepnes' wit and style that keep you coming back’ -- Lena Dunham ‘That peerless author who makes me laugh and glance over my shoulder on the very same page’ -- Jessica Knoll ‘I absolutely loved it. It’s completely addictive, razor-sharp writing from Kepnes. Internet creeping at its most darkly humorous. Joe’s back, and this time it’s definitely real love’ -- Catherine Steadman ‘As irresistible and as blisteringly acid as ever. Horrible and glorious’ -- Catriona Ward ‘Magnificent’ -- Guardian  ‘Joe Goldberg has become a cultural mainstay. . . . Kepnes has mastered the likable villain’ -- Rolling Stone ‘Everyone's favorite stalker’ -- Entertainment Weekly ‘Chilling . . . dangerously clever’ -- USA Today ‘Beautifully crafted . . . will give you chills’ -- People ‘Caroline Kepnes must be some kind of storytelling sorcerer. How else can Joe Goldberg — stalker, creep, multiple-murderer, blamer of everyone else but himself, a “long overdue book, the one you never thought was coming” — be such an entertaining narrator? Even Tom Ripley, Patricia Highsmith’s famously amoral character (a clear inspiration for Kepnes), could be enjoyed at a third-person remove, unlike the in-your-face immediacy of Joe’s blinkered perspective . . . brilliant’  -- The New York Times Book Review ‘Kepnes waggishly satirizes the publishing industry, and her outsized characters’ egos and anxieties lay the foundations for delightfully deranged plot twists . . . Joe’s stream-of-consciousness narration engages throughout, rendering readers both confidante and accomplice. Kepnes reliably entertains’ -- Publishers Weekly
