Synopsis

'Gripping and fast-paced' Good Housekeeping 'Powerful and moving' ERIN KELLY, author of He Said/She Said When a young writer accepts a job at a university in the remote countryside, it's meant to be a fresh start, away from the big city and the scene of a violent assault she's desperate to forget. But when one of her students starts sending in chapters from his novel that blur the lines between fiction and reality, the professor recognises herself as the main character in his book - and he has written her a horrific fate. Will she be able to stop life imitating art before it's too late? At once a breathless battle-of-wits and a disarming exploration of sexual politics, The Body Lies is an essential book for our times. ___________________ 'An outstanding book' CLARE MACKINTOSH 'A literary exploration of consent, entitlement and how narratives can be bent, misappropriated and wrested back. I loved it' SARAH VAUGHAN 'Gripping and strange in the best possible way: the perfect marriage of risky literary fiction and full-on thriller' MARIA SEMPLE, bestselling author of Where d'ya go Bernadette? 'This page-turning thriller has a sympathetic and utterly believable heroine, but it's also an examination of how women's bodies are treated, in life and in fiction.' The Bookseller 'A novelist with a gift for intimate and atmospheric storytelling' Financial Times
