Tony and Susan : The Riveting Novel That Inspired the New Movie Nocturnal Animals
by Austin Wright




Overview -
Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband, Edward Sheffield, an unpublished writer. Now, she's enduring middle class suburbia as a doctor's wife, when out of the blue she receives a package containing the manuscript of her ex-husband's first novel. He writes asking her to read the book; she was always his best critic, he says.

As Susan reads, she is drawn into the fictional life of Tony Hastings, a math professor driving his family to their summer house in Maine. And as we read with her, we too become lost in Sheffield's thriller. As the Hastings' ordinary, civilized lives are disastrously, violently sent off course, Susan is plunged back into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her, and driven to name the fear that gnaws at her future and will change her life.

Tony and Susan is a dazzling, eerie, riveting novel about fear and regret, blood and revenge, marriage and creativity. It is simply one of a kind. A superb and thrilling novel...extrodinary. -- Ian McEwan

Compelling...mesmerizing...absolutely irresistible.--New York Times

A perfect and literary puzzle, an irresistible tale anout marriage and murder, both thriling and moving. -- Scott Turow

A page-turner of a literary thriller. -- Sara Waters

Beautifully written, perfectly paced, impressively clever, and ultimately shocking in a way you never see coming. -- Nelson DeMille

Absolutely terrifying, beautiful, and appalling. Parts of it shocked me, and I am not easily shocked. -- Ruth Rendell
