About the Author
Zoë Heller was born in London and lives in New York City. Currently a columnist for London's Daily Telegraph, she has contributed to such publications as Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, The Independent, The Sunday Times (London), and The New Republic. She is also the author of the novel Everything You Know.
"An inspired tale of two women, one seen through the other's eyes, with the viewer revealing more of herself than she ever suspects. From the first sentence to the last, the story and the writing of it have a thrilling intensity that holds the reader's rapt attention." --Paula Fox"The most gripping novel of the year. You leave this extraordinary book utterly shaken, with new knowledge of the human heart. Heller writes with a precision that stirs the blood and an uncommon insight into the darker sides of love." --Nuala O'Faolain
"Heller elevates a tabloid-worthy tale of obsession into an intense, witty, literary page-turner." --Entertainment Weekly "Deliciously perverse, laugh-out-loud funny [with] caustic wit and needle-sharp observations. The reader looks on, amused and aghast, as both unlikely seductress and her self-deluding protector become locked in a helpless embrace of need and betrayal." --Vogue "Deft, multivalent characterizations." --Lisa Levy, Newsday "Wicked and wonderful social satire." --Glamour "Heller is a great ventriloquist of character, and as the unhinged curator of the Sheba affair, Barbara is painfully note-perfect. What Was She Thinking? Achieves some very worthy literary aims indeed." --The Washington Post Book World
