Description
Praise for Caroline Kepnes and You : "Hypnotic and scary." --Stephen King "I am RIVETED, AGHAST, AROUSED, you name it. The rare instance when prose and plot are equally delicious." --Lena Dunham In the compulsively readable follow-up to her widely acclaimed debut novel, You , Caroline Kepnes weaves a tale that Booklist calls "the love child of Holden Caulfield and Patrick Bateman." Hidden Bodies marks the return of a voice that Stephen King described as original and hypnotic, and through the divisive and charmingly sociopathic character of Joe Goldberg, Kepnes satirizes and dissects our culture, blending suspense with scathing wit. Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he's heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him. In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac , works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbor. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can't stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don't always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: truelove. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he's more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn't want to hurt his new girlfriend--he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he's done, he may not have a choice...

display_description "There's something deeply insidious about the storytelling of Caroline Kepnes. As satire of a self-absorbed society, Kepnes hits the mark, cuts deep, and twists the knife." —Entertainment Weekly

"Obsessed." —Jessica Knoll, New York Times bestselling author of Luckiest Girl Alive

"Delicious and insane...The plot may be twisty and scintillating, but its Kepnes' wit and style that keep you coming back." —Lena Dunham

"Hypnotic and scary." —Stephen King
