Drop-dead gorgeous, brilliant, lyrical, cultured and rich enough to never have pedestrian worries, Sam is also the most manipulative and mean-spirited Bitch you could ever meet. As she researches her next novel, she traipses through a pleasant suburb, wrecking every marriage in her path with methods that would make Cruella DeVille blush. Her motives aren’t pure, and Sam derives vindictive, luscious pleasure from watching others’ misery.

Lisa Taddeo’s Bitch is not only an astonishingly vivid first novel with well-drawn characters and crisp, engaging language. It is also a terrifying look at relationships, their fragility, and the ego’s struggle to assert itself just when our lives appear balanced.
