Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A true story of obsessive love turning to obsessive hate, Give Me Everything You Have chronicles the author's strange and harrowing ordeal at the hands of a former student, a self-styled ""verbal terrorist,"" who began trying, in her words, to ""ruin him."" Hate mail, online postings, and public accusations of plagiarism and sexual misconduct were her weapons of choice and, as with more conventional terrorist weapons, proved remarkably difficult to combat. James Lasdun's account, while terrifying, is told with compassion and humor, and brilliantly succeeds in turning a highly personal story into a profound meditation on subjects as varied as madness, race, Middle East politics, and the meaning of honor and reputation in the Internet age.

Review:

"Narrator Robin Sachs delivers a stirring performance as he relates Lasdun's tumultuous account of being threatened and harassed by a former student suffering from extreme obsession. While the story is largely a dark one, Sachs is able to find moments of underplayed humor in Lasdun's writing. Sachs's delivery is steadfast, and his pacing is equally strong; he knows how to command an audience and bring the story to new heights as he manipulates his tone for great dramatic effect. Sachs is a true professional and his performance is thoroughly engaging and a testament to his skill. An FSG hardcover." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

A true story that chronicles the author's strange and harrowing ordeal at the hands of a stalker.
