Novel About My Wife

by Emily Perkins - £8.99  Bloomsbury Publishing PLC (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780747596509 | ISBN 10: 0747596506

Tom Stone is madly in love with his wife Ann. Pushing forty and expecting their first child, they buy a semi-derelict house in Hackney. Despite their spiralling money troubles, they believe this is their settled future. But Ann becomes convinced she’s being shadowed by a homeless man whose presence seems like a terrible omen. As their child grows, Ann’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic, feverish and disturbed. On the verge of losing everything, Tom makes a decision that he hopes will save their lives.
 
Novel About My Wife is a taut, sensuous and chilling portrait of a marriage beset by paranoia and obsession.

"A beautiful, shocking book, it had me gripped from its very first sentence."
(Maggie O'Farrell)
"A frightening tale of delusion...fast and inexorable... Perkins draws out the emotional tension and the thematic parallels while keeping the action tight and gripping."
(Sunday Times)
