Guilty admissions

July 13th, 2020

Zsuzsi Gartner’s first, full-length novel, The Beguiling (Hamish Hamilton $29.95 hardcover) will be coming out in September 2020. Lapsed-Catholic Lucy hears a deathbed confession from a cousin and then strangely starts getting bombarded with guilty admissions from other people. Stranger still, Lucy starts liking the dark stories and is soon connecting them to her own errant past. Gartner’s publisher says the book, “lays bare the flesh and blood sacrifices people are willing to make to get what they think they desire.”
