9780393285543Sweet Lamb of Heaven by Lydia Millet, Norton – on our shelves now
In some ways the perfect novel for this year of election!  Anna is married to Ned, a businessman and aspiring politician who wants her to look perfect for the camera. But behind the scenes, he is cold and manipulative and  has no real feeling for her or their six-year-old daughter. But, when they run away from him and hide in a rundown coastal motel, he will do anything to get them back.  A suspenseful, psychological thriller that also touches on our need to regain the sense of a living universe, and the power that can offer in the sense of authentic living and overcoming disconnected emotions, like manipulation. The writing in this book is engaging from page one.
