A young woman pretends to be someone she isn’t in this stunning novel by the NY Times bestselling author of The Girls. 

“A quintessentially American tale, a smouldering thriller that explores desire & deception from the point of view of an escort named Alex ...”  - Ron Charles, The Washington Post

“Alex drained her wineglass, then her water glass. The ocean looked calm, a black darker than the sky. A ripple of anxiety made her palms go damp. It seemed suddenly very tenuous to believe that anything would stay hidden, that she could successfully pass from one world to another.”

Summer is coming to a close on the East End of Long Island, & Alex is no longer welcome. A misstep at a dinner party & the older man she’s been staying with dismisses her with a ride to the train station & a ticket back to the city. With few resources & a waterlogged phone, but gifted with an ability to navigate the desires of others, Alex stays on Long Island & drifts like a ghost through the hedged lanes, gated driveways, & sun-blasted dunes of a rarefied world that is, at first, closed to her. 

Propelled by desperation & a mutable sense of morality, she spends the week leading up to Labor Day moving from one place to the next, a cipher leaving destruction in her wake. 

"Deceptively simple ... What follows could be read as an entertaining series of misguided shenanigans interrupting the upper class’s summer vacation, but under Cline’s command, every sentence as sharp as a scalpel, a woman toeing the line between welcome & unwelcome guest becomes a fully destabilizing force."  - Liska Jacobs, The New York Times Book Review

Taut, propulsive, & impossible to look away from, Emma Cline’s The Guest is a spellbinding literary achievement.

Emma Cline is the New York Times bestselling author of The Girls & the story collection Daddy. The Girls was a finalist for the Center for Fiction’s First Novel Prize.
