A psychosexual phantasm of lies deteriorates a young, nameless narrator into pain, loneliness, and sober reality. Written in luminous prose, Megan Nolan tells a story of a couple's lewd and subtly toxic intricacies, creeping obsessions with love, sex, and flirtations with alcoholism. If Sally Rooney wrote Conversations with Friends into a thriller, it would read something like this. Superb! ~ Reviewed by Alex Bell
