Ryan's July 2019 pick, 1 of 2
I had the pleasure of meeting Helen Phillips at an event and when I picked up her book afterwards, I found myself sucked into a creepy story that felt at once very personal and completely out of this world. A novel of motherhood, paranoia, and home intrusion, THE NEED will have you checking every shadowy corner in your home, but absolutely nothing is as it seems. This book takes twists and turns that will give you whiplash and will have you turning the pages as fast as you can to find out what happens next. This book grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go. Fans of Sarah Pinborough's BEHIND HER EYES will love this book. It's terrifying, thrilling, and goes places you can't possibly predict.
“I firmly believe I will be hard-pressed to pick up a book in 2019 I love more than The Need, a genre-bending novel that explores motherhood and identity. Molly is the most authentic character I’ve had the pleasure of reading in quite some time, accompanied by baby Ben and lively Viv, the most fully realized fictional four-year-old ever. Is The Need a fever dream, a psychological thriller, a cosmic twist of fate unveiling a parallel world? The author leaves her readers to wonder while highlighting the dualities of domestic life. In gorgeous prose, Phillips shows how the mundane is often revealed to be just that, but sometimes that mundanity is sacred. A deeply immersive human story.”
