"Powerful read"

Autorentext
JO BAKER is the author of the acclaimed and bestselling LONGBOURN and A COUNTRY ROAD, A TREE. Her new novel, THE BODY LIES, is a thrilling contemporary novel that explores violence against women in fiction but is also a disarming story of sexual politics. Jo Baker lives with her family in Lancashire.

Zusammenfassung
---A GUARDIAN BEST SUMMER READ---

'Gripping and fast-paced' Good Housekeeping

'Powerful and moving' ERIN KELLY, author of He Said/She Said

When a young writer accepts a job at a university in the remote countryside, it's meant to be a fresh start, away from the big city and the scene of a violent assault she's desperate to forget. But when one of her students starts sending in chapters from his novel that blur the lines between fiction and reality, the professor recognises herself as the main character in his book - and he has written her a horrific fate.

Will she be able to stop life imitating art before it's too late?

At once a breathless battle-of-wits and a disarming exploration of sexual politics, The Body Lies is an essential book for our times.

'Page-turning thriller and examination of how women's bodies are treated, in life and in fiction.' THE BOOKSELLER

'Baker's heroine is one of the most believable I've seen on the page in a long timenuanced, non-linear, lifelike' TLS
