Eva never really wanted to be a mother; certainly not the mother of the unlovable boy who murdered seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker and a teacher who tried to befriend him. Now, two years later, it is time for her to come to terms with marriage, career, family, parenthood and Kevin's horrific rampage in a series of startlingly direct correspondences with her absent husband, Franklyn. Uneasy with the sacrifices and social demotion of motherhood from the start, Eva fears that her alarming dislike for her own son may be responsible for driving him so nihilistically off the rails.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Once in a while, a stunningly powerful novel comes along, knocks you sideways and takes your breath away: this is it... a horrifying, original, witty, brave and deliberately provocative investigation into all the casual assumptions we make about family life, and motherhood in particular * Daily Mail *
One of the most striking works of fiction to be published this year. It is Desperate Housewives as written by Euripides... A powerful, gripping and original meditation on evil * New Statesman *

“Difficult to understand!”

I have just started reading this book and after just two chapters i've given up. The language used is so hard to understand! The whole thing is written in such a pretentious way i found myself drifting in and out... More

“My Favourite Book”

When I first started reading this book I felt it to be a challenge. The language was at times complex but as the novel progressed I came to realise it was a reflection on the protagonist which was key.

I loved how... More

“Compelling”

Could not stop reading. A battle of wills played out to the final degree. Some horrific moments and just when you think you have the answer, evidence changes.
