Listen to Me

by Hannah Pittard

eBook

1 of 2 copies available

A page-turning modern gothic about a marriage and road trip gone hauntingly awry

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice

"Pittard deserves the attention of anyone in search of today's best fiction." — Washington Post

"Revelatory." — The New Yorker

"[Listen to Me] gripped me completely and even gave me nightmares, which is high praise in my book." — Chicago Tribune


Mark and Maggie's annual drive east to visit family has gotten off to a rocky start. By the time they're on the road, it's late, a storm is brewing, and they are no longer speaking to each other. Adding to the stress, Maggie—recently mugged at gunpoint—is lately not herself, and Mark is at a loss about what to make of the stranger he calls his wife. When the couple is forced to stop for the night at a remote inn completely without power, Maggie's paranoia reaches an all-time and terrifying high. But as Mark finds himself threatened in a dark parking lot, it's Maggie who takes control.
"Pittard proves herself a master of ordinary suspense." — New York Times
"Listen to Me elides so many genres that it's Houdini-like, bursting through constraints. It moves between its two characters' inner lives as effortlessly as an Olympic swimmer strokes through water." Ann Beattie, Paris Review blog

"A psychologically complex, addictive, and quick-moving read. I didn't want it to end!" — M.O. Walsh, author of New York Times best-selling novel My Sunshine Away
