Baby

Annaleese Jochems

Very dark but funny entry into the world of anti-heroine Cynthia: reality TV, sexual obsession and a terrifying will to win. More than a touch of Donna Tartt's novels too, I felt, as I tried to work out just who was controlling whom. Warning: definitely NOT for dog lovers.

Extract

Cynthia's at war - with a man - for a woman. She watches 'The Bachelor' for three hours. It's all about how to fight your enemies by lying, kissing, fucking and dressing really well. All she needs to do is remember everything she knew in her old life ...
... Cynthia knows she's tougher.
