You think you are rid of me. You think you have drawn a line under the whole affair. You are so, so wrong. For five years, Sally and Clive have been lost in a passionate affair. Now he has dumped her, to devote himself to his wife and family, and Sally is left in freefall. It starts with a casual stroll past his house, and popping into the brasserie where his son works. Then Sally befriends Clive's wife and daughter on Facebook. But that's alright isn't it? I mean they are perfectly normal things to do. Aren't they? Not since Fatal Attraction has the fallout from an illicit affair been exposed in such a sharp, darkly funny and disturbing way. After all, who doesn't know a normal, perfectly sane woman who has gone a little crazy when her heart was broken?
Fatal Attraction updated for the era of Facebook: a sharp, funny, dark debut novel set in contemporary London, written as a journal addressed by a former mistress to the married lover who dumped her.
