Textul de pe ultima copertă

His name is Rafe, and he is everywhere Clarissa turns. At work. At her apartment. At the park. His messages choke her voicemail; his unwanted gifts keep appearing at her door. And as he has made clear, he will never let her go.
Clarissa's only sanctuary is the courtroom where she serves jury duty. The trial's rhythm allows her space to make new friends, including Robert, an attractive widower. But Rafe's relentless fixation, now fueled by jealousy, escalates in tandem with the chilling tale of predator and prey unfolding before Clarissa in court. Her only chance of escape lies in exposing Rafe's sinister intentions. Strand by strand she unravels the macabre fairy tale Rafe has spun around them and discovers that the happy ending he envisions is more horrifying than her darkest fears.
Masterfully constructed, with riveting tension and a haunting sense of menace, Claire Kendal's extraordinary debut explores the lines between obsession and love, offering a heart-stopping portrait of a woman determined to survive.


“Truly riveting….Clarissa’s silence is both understandable and possibly her undoing.”
“Minutes after you dip into Kendal’s novel you’ll know what it’s like to be a woman who’s being stalked—and by the end, your heart will thump and your shirt will get clammy with nervous sweat.”
“An engrossing literary thriller…. The author (who lectures in English literature and creative writing) uses the more violent and sadistic aspects of fairy tales…to explore modern relationships…. As grimly seductive as any of its inspirational sources.”
“Obsession masquerades as love in British author Kendal’s intimate, chilling first novel….With flawless timing…Kendal spins a tale that’s troubling, raw, and gripping.”
“Kendal’s debut novel is a palpitating tale of obsession and dangerously unrequited love. Fans of Gone Girl and The Silent Wife will enjoy the delectable tension right up until the heart-stopping conclusion.”
“Kendal uses her writing skills to fine advantage, both in creating Clarissa’s evidentiary journal, which she hopes will help nail Rafe, and in chronicling Rafe’s growing menace….Nicely written.”
“Kendal expertly heightens the suspense while offering a disturbing portrait of a clever stalker who believes himself to be in love.”
The Book of You is a frighteningly intimate—and accurate—portrayal of stalking. Through Clarissa’s eyes, we see the ragged nerves, sleepless nights and paranoia brought about by Rafe’s ‘romantic’ obsession. First-time author Claire Kendal draws readers into a taut, compulsively readable tale of pursuit and escape.”
“Your stomach will be in knots before the end of the first chapter of Kendal’s debut novel.”
“Claire Kendal makes a smashing debut with the…The Book of You.…most readers [will] finish the brilliantly constructed novel in one or two sittings.”
“This dark, disturbing debut…announces the arrival of a fierce new talent.”
“A gripping tale, well-written and cleverly plotted...[that] demonstrates vividly how destructive [stalking] can be.”
The Book of You starts with breathtaking brilliance and then just gets better with every page.... [It] is already my book of the year.”
“Chilling, raw, and utterly addictive, The Book of You is the kind of psychological thriller that you will want to read in one gulp, only to find yourself terrified once the lights are off.”
“I literally hardly breathed as I raced to the end. It’s a terrifying thriller…so addictive.”
