I drove myself out of New York City, where a man shot himself in front of me. He was a gluttonous man and when his blood came out it looked like the blood of a pig.

That’s a cruel thing to think, I know. He did it in a restaurant where I was having dinner with another man, another married man.

Do you see how this is going? But I wasn’t always that way.

I am depraved. I hope you like me.

Critic Reviews

"Like a series of grenades exploding." (Marian Keyes)

"Wow. Dark, hypnotic and horrifying, with a central protagonist in Joan who demands your deepest empathy despite every transgression, it’s brilliantly written and expertly done. I loved it." (Harriet Tyce, best-selling author of Blood Orange and The Lies You Told)

"I don’t think there is a writer alive who writes about the interior lives of women with the raw truth and intensity [Taddeo] does.... Fearless, sexy, brutal and just forensically observed. She is extraordinary." (Jojo Moyes)
