Dead-end job, hostile ex-husband, money running out—common problems take on a sinister aspect
when you’re left all alone. So is it a symptom of envy or some darker desire that drives a super-fan
to hoard her favorite actress’s discarded things in a boarded-up room? Life’s disappointments
mount, and a morbid fixation becomes increasingly deranged. A casual encounter between the two
women looms: what’s the worst that could happen at a summer block party?

With sparkling literary language and an arsenal of deadly thrills, LOOKER combines the bravura
voice of Ottessa Moshfegh and the psychological fascinations of Paula Hawkins into an enormously
entertaining tale for our media saturated era.

LAURA SIMS is the author of Looker, a novel; four books of poetry, most recently Staying Alive;
and the editor of Fare Forward: Letters from David Markson. She lives outside of New York City with
her family.
