With or Without You
Publisher: Akashic Books
This novel about a violently obsessed fan is “part journal, part suicide note and part psychological suspense story” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Set in the late 1980s, and shifting between the points of view of an eighteen-year-old girl who is in prison for murdering a soap actress and the mother of the victim, this novel takes a dark look at celebrity and tabloid culture, neglectful parenting, and the damage that can arise from a desperate need for attention. From a Lambda Literary Award–winning author, With or Without You is “a fearless book that captures perfectly the torment of modern-day adolescence, as well as the utter loneliness of obsession” (Nina Revoyr, author of Southland).
