From their first encounter, late one night in an underground car park, the narrator of True Things About Me is intoxicated by a stranger who seems to overwhelm her quiet life.
But beneath the surface something takes hold that will drive her to extremes of pleasure - and finally, on a cold and eerie night to face up to her fate.

Review by nikkitm
I am not sure if this is a book that anyone enjoys. It is frustrating, jumpy, unfocused and fragmented, however I suspect that is deliberate style choice. It is a short book which is just as well because I could not put it down. You often want to scream at the unamed lead and I would certainly not call her brave.It is uncomfortable but gripping reading and I cannot wait to read her next book.
