A Kind of Intimacy, By Jenn Ashworth

Click to follow

Annie is morbidly obsese, lonely and hopeful. When she moves into her new home, she brings little else but her cat, Mr Tips, and a collection of cow-shaped milk jugs.

As she chats to us through her house-move, it's easy to warm to her seemingly sunny personality, but as her neighbour Neil, and his gorgeous girlfriend, Lucy, soon find out, she's a creature of super-charged malice and sexual menace.

In this delightfully over-the-top debut novel, Jenn Ashworth describes a monstrous young woman just normal enough not to be entirely written off.
