A page-turning modern gothic about a marriage and road trip gone hauntingly awry A New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice “Pittard deserves the attention of anyone in search of today’s best fiction.” — Washington Post “Revelatory.” — The New Yorker “[Listen to Me] gripped me completely and even gave me nightmares, which is high praise in my book.” — Chicago Tribune Mark and Maggie’s annual drive east to visit family has gotten off to a rocky start. By the time they’re on the road, it’s late, a storm is brewing, and they are no longer speaking to each other. Adding to the stress, Maggie—recently mugged at gunpoint—is lately not herself, and Mark is at a loss about what to make of the stranger he calls his wife. When the couple is forced to stop for the night at a remote inn completely without power, Maggie’s paranoia reaches an all-time and terrifying high. But as Mark finds himself threatened in a dark parking lot, it’s Maggie who takes control. “Pittard proves herself a master of ordinary suspense.” — New York Times “Listen to Me elides so many genres that it’s Houdini-like, bursting through constraints. It moves between its two characters’ inner lives as effortlessly as an Olympic swimmer strokes through water.” — Ann Beattie, Paris Review blog “A psychologically complex, addictive, and quick-moving read. I didn’t want it to end!” — M.O. Walsh, author of New York Times best-selling novel My Sunshine Away
