Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband, Edward Sheffield, an unpublished writer.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.

The secondary story (Nocturnal Animals - which is the title of the movie being made based on this book) is a flat-out gut punch. I found it to be extremely compelling and disturbing. The primary story is more subtle, but still leaves the reader feeling uneasy - you get the feeling that something is going on, but you don't know quite what it is - and I, for one, really didn't want to know.
Austin Wright has written an exceptional book here - two stories that leave you wondering just what the connection between them is.
