Diane Johnson writes with great sensitivity and skill about a divorced woman with four children, a lover, and ANGST. Her protagonist's interior monologues describe the paranoia engendered by the dislocations and unpredictability of modern life. About halfway through the novel, I found the themes too repetitious and I stopped caring.

Johnson is more droll than Henry James, to whom she's been compared, and she's as witty as a modern-day Voltaire.

A series of violent happenings add to a young woman's conviction that she is going to be murdered

Meet N.

She may be your next-door neighbor or someone who lives down the block. Maybe she is a relative or just a person you happen to see when shopping at the local grocery store. N. has struggles on the rugged track of life - divorced mother, rocky finances, a relationship falling apart - but it's the shadows which lurk in the deepest regions of the soul that seem to be consuming her.

Author Diane Johnson takes the reader on a wild ride of raw emotions, quirky feelings and fears as N. tries to find love - and answers - in all the wrong places. She does a masterful job in developing N. and a wealth of supporting characters, with each one playing a believable role in a story that is rich in imagery and a plot that - like life - takes an unpredictable twist in the end.

And the consequences to shine a strong light on those shadows may be very chilling.
  • Nidora
This is subversive in the sense that it follows the suspense formula, but really is about the characters, and exhibits a very complex and melancholy view of life. The author is real literary writer. The usual formulas are not followed. The protagonist is female, a real woman unlike the many male authors writing as women.

Impossible not to like this incredibly-talented writer.

Of course she went on to write Le Divorce.
  • JUST DO IT
Sorry but this is one of very few books I've read that I just could not read. I didn't even pass it on, threw it away. I always look at reviews and look for books with 4 stars and higher. This fit my criteria so maybe I was just "off" when I started this book! Lots of people enjoyed it. No offense intended.

About halfway through the novel, I found the themes too repetitious and I stopped caring. My ennui ultimately marred my appreciation for this well-written novel.

If Diane Johnson isn't Class A, I dont know what is. The good news, is that this is indeed Class A material in the form of a novel. Kubrick was a fan. So, we are all in good company.

I read this book when it was first published, a long time ago. I loved it then. It was funny and scary and elegantly written. I'm buying it in this incarnation because I want to reread it. I'm so glad it's available.
  • Flamehammer
This book was quite intriguing to me. From the very first, I was sucked in...WHO is stalking this woman? I do agree with another reviewer that sometimes the protagonist's constant questioning gets monotonous... (The author could have cut about 25 pages out). Many of the ideas in the book disturbed me, yet I couldn't put it down...I found the ending to be shocking and I thought about it for days afterward
