Emma Cline, author of the bestselling sensation The Girls, will be joining us in Bath to discuss her brilliant new novel, The Guest.
The Girls, a haunting depiction of women caught up in the Manson Family cult, is one of the biggest selling debut novels of the 21st century, as well as one of our bookseller Liv’s favourite reads of all time.
Now Emma returns with The Guest, an addictive and audacious novel following one young woman lying, cheating and grifting her way through a hot and tense summer amongst the elite of Long Island. This is the ultimate literary page-turner for 2023 – the Mr B’s team has already started devouring it and we can’t wait to discuss the book with her!
About the Book:
Summer is coming to a close on Long Island, and Alex is no longer welcome… One misstep at a dinner party and the older man she’s been staying with dismisses her with a ride to the train station and a ticket back to the city. With few resources, but a gift for navigating the desires of others, Alex stays on the island.
She drifts like a ghost through the gated driveways and sun-blasted dunes of a rarefied world, trailing destruction in her wake. Taut, sensual and impossible to look away from, The Guest captures the latent heat and potential danger of a summer that could go either way for a young woman teetering on the edge.
