VINTAGE CLASSICS' AMERICAN GOTHIC SERIES
Spine-tingling, mind-altering and deliciously atmospheric, journey into the dark side of America with nine of its most uncanny classics.

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE*
**FROM THE AUTHOR OF TIKTOK SENSATION MY YEAR OF REST AND RELAXATION**

Trapped between caring for her alcoholic father and her job as a secretary at the boys' prison, Eileen Dunlop dreams of escaping to the big city.

In the meantime, her nights and weekends are filled with shoplifting and cleaning up her increasingly deranged father's messes.

When the beautiful, charismatic Rebecca Saint John arrives on the scene as the new counsellor at the prison, Eileen is enchanted, unable to resist what appears to be a miraculously budding friendship. But soon, Eileen's affection for Rebecca pull her into a crime that far surpasses even her own wild imagination.

'Fully lives up to the hype. A taut psychological thriller, rippled with comedy as black as a raven's wing, Eileen is effortlessly stylish and compelling' The Times

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE CWA NEW BLOOD DAGGER AWARD*
