From the author of Saturn's Return to New York comes this dark psychological thriller. "'What we think is impos-sible happens all the time.' So claims the beguiling narrator of Come Closer, and after reading this spare and menacing tale, the reader has to agree. Sara Gran has created a sly, satisfying (fast!) novel of one young woman possessed not only by a demon but also by her own secret desires."-Stewart O'Nan

Short but definitely not sweet. When things go wrong they do in a hurry in this tale of possession.

Tremendous read, notable for the understated way in which the narrator comes to terms with what's happening to her. She's aware but still helpless. There are quite a few quietly chilling scenes that will give you pause.

This would make an excellent movie.

Fantastic read

This is, in general, about what?
The only thing scary in this book - its cover.
The rest - everything already was read before.
And proofreading of the text is very weak. But this is
lack of the publisher.
