During the summer of 1975, a rapist stalked the streets of Cambridge, attacking young, single women and subjecting them to horrifying, violent assaults. Over one summer a young photographer is forced to examine his relationship with women as he becomes involved in a series of sexual intrigues.
The finest and most disturbing novel so far from the author of "The Dumb House" and "The Mercy Boys." Twenty-five years ago a rapist stalked the streets of Cambridge and violently attacked young women. These events form the background to this extra-ordinary novel in which a young photographer must examine his relations with women, with other men and with his family at home.
John Burnside is the author of two previous novels, "The Dumb House" and "The Mercy Boys," (joint winner of the Encore Award); a collection of stories, " Burning Elvis"; and seven books of poetry, most recently "The Asylum Dance."
