Reviews

"Maynard's latest is illuminating and mesmerizing, highlight not only differing definitions of friendship, but the shades of gray between right and wrong and the lengths to which some will go to protect their self-interest." -- Publishers Weekly

"My to-do list had umpteen items on it, but I let them all go to hell as I tore through Joyce Maynard's latest page-turner. . . . To-do list? What to-do list? Under the Influence is a riveting read." -- Wally Lamb

"It's a story about the pull of consuming friendships, of seeking to escape into the lives of others, of possession and illusion -- and you will not be able to put it down until Maynard herself releases you. Utterly captivating." -- Megan Abbott, Edgar Award-winning author of Dare Me and The Fever
