A nineteen-year-old waitress and aspiring actress living in Webster, Minnesota, she becomes enchanted by an exotic outsider - an artist from New York. Drawn into a world of erotic adventure, she finds herself the target of mysterious acts of madness as she strains against the confines of small town life.

Compelling...Webster's hot-house atmosphere and collection of oddballs and freaks are brilliantly evoked...She orchestrates suspense masterfully and her writing has a quality of stillness, of effortless deliberation, which is peculiarly suited to the sense of foreboding. * <i>Literary Review</i> * Full of humour, surprise and powerful images...Hustvedt's real triumph, though, is to take the ordinary and make it strange while showing how all strangeness is rooted in the ordinary. * <i>Observer</i> * Told with the gripping pace of a straightforward mystery tale...A natural born storyteller * <i>Independent</i> * A taut and convincing drama, as well as an intriguing metaphysical thriller * <i>Sunday Times</i> * Subtle, complex and engaging * <i>Financial Times</i> * Hustvedt's powerful theme of small-town mentality shows how intimacy and claustrophobia, secrets and skeletons, come out of the same closet...[an] exploration of the narrow line between imagination and reality while still managing to be a rip-roaring adventure story...beautifully written * <i>Scotsman</i> * A startlingly good novel, tautly written and very sexy. * <i>Marie Claire</i> *
