Foe: A Novel

No reviews
"Foe is a tale of implacably mounting peril that feels all the more terrifying for being told in such a quiet, elegantly stripped-down voice. Iain Reid knows how to do ominous as well as anyone Ive ever read." --Scott Smith, author of The Ruins and A Simple Plan

A taut, psychological mind-bender from the bestselling author of Im Thinking of Ending Things.

We dont get visitors. Not out here. We never have.

In Iain Reids second haunting, philosophical puzzle of a novel, set in the near-future, Junior and Henrietta live a comfortable, solitary life on their farm, far from the city lights, but in close quarters with each other. One day, a stranger from the city arrives with alarming news: Junior has been randomly selected to travel far away from the farm...very far away. The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Henrietta wont have a chance to miss him, because she wont be left alone--not even for a moment. Henrietta will have company. Familiar company.

Told in Reids sharp and evocative style, Foe examines the nature of domestic relationships, self-determination, and what it means to be (or not to be) a person. An eerily entrancing page-turner, it churns with unease and suspense from the first words to its shocking finale.
