Dark Places

Kate Grenville

Dark Places tells the story of this man – two parts monster to one part buffoon – and of his growing obsession. As the horror mounts, we gain a terrifying glimpse of the male ego’s dark side, and of the destruction it can wreak upon itself and others. Yet at the same time Kate Grenville keeps alive the reader’s sympathy for this doomed figure. This is a novel that fearlessly confronts the aspects of ourselves from which we normally recoil.
