A young woman pretends to be someone she isn’t, determined to inhabit a world of privilege, in this stunning novel by the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Girls.Summer is coming to a close on Long Island, and Alex is no longer welcome.A misstep at a dinner party, and the older man she’s been staying with dismisses her with a ride to the train station and a ticket back to the city.With few resources and a waterlogged phone, but gifted with an ability to navigate the desires of others, Alex stays on Long Island and drifts like a ghost through the hedged lanes, gated driveways and sun-blasted dunes of a rarified world that is, at first, closed to her. Propelled by desperation and a mutablesense of morality, she spends the week leading up to the end of the holidays moving from one place to the next, a cipher leaving destruction in her wake.Taut, propulsive, and impossible to look away from, Emma Cline’s The Guest is a spellbinding literary achievement.]]>
