Editorial Reviews

Review

"I could not stop until I reached the very last line."
—Sarah Weinman

“What begins as a sly fable about frustrated desire evolves into a genuinely scary novel about possession and insanity. Hypnotic, disturbing, and written with such unerring confidence you believe every word, Come Closer is one of the most precise and graceful pieces of fiction I've read in a long time.”
—Bret Easton Ellis
 
“Ideal for an evening’s reading, with a kick that will stay with the reader for days afterward.”
Dallas Morning News
 
“Sara Gran has written an intelligent horror story, a literary creepshow that works its magic subtly and well.  It’s a marvel of restraint and taste, and still it worms its way under your skin and stays there.”
—Darin Strauss
 
“Sara Gran’s Come Closer ought to carry a warning to readers.  It’s impossible to begin this intense, clever, beautifully written novel without turning every page.  A wonderful accomplishment.”
—Margot Livesey
 
“I read Come Closer on the train, in a snowstorm, on a cold December night.  It was the right atmosphere for this perfectly noirish tale of madness and love.  Author Sara Gran writes with scalpel-like clarity, expertly blending tones to create a new kind of psychological thriller.  I loved this book.  Days after finishing it, it has not left my mind.”
—George Pelecanos
 
“‘What we think is impossible happens all the time.’ So claims the beguiling narrator of Come Closer, and after reading this spare and menacing tale, the reader has to agree.  Sara Gran has created a sly, satisfying (fast!) novel of one young woman possessed not only by a demon but also by her own secret desires.”
—Stewart O’Nan
 
Come Closer is sharp and strange and, best of all, at the moment of truth it doesn’t flinch from its own mad logic.”
—Sam Lipsyte
 
The Yellow Wallpaper meets Rosemary’s Baby in a slim, wonderfully eerie novel.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
"Polished and unsettling."
The Cleveland Plain Dealer
 
“It gave us the creeps.”
Arizona Republic

"About as twisted as they come."
CrimeReads
