Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the critically acclaimed author of The Mysteries comes a haunting, lyrical, and provocative novel of a young woman’s coming-of-age betwixt dream and reality. Here there’s only one thing more dangerous than desire—getting what you want....

As a child, Agnes Grey dreamed of the perfect friend to ease her loneliness: a doll that would talk to her, tell her stories, share her secrets. Only her aunt Marjorie seemed to really understand. Something of an outcast herself, she told Agnes she’d had just such a doll when she was a child. She called it her pillow friend. So when Agnes receives her very own pillow friend—an old-fashioned porcelain doll painted to look like an old-world gentleman—she’s certain her dreams have come true. And so they have—but in ways that Agnes could never have imagined. For as the line between fantasy and reality blurs, Agnes discovers that every dream has its price and every desire must be paid for. Be very careful what you wish for...he’ll surely give it to you.

Synopsis:

A lonely outcast growing up in 1960s Texas, Agnes is delighted when she receives an old-fashioned porcelain doll painted like an old-world gentleman--one that is similar to her Aunt Marjorie's childhood Pillow Friend--to whom she can tell her secrets and dreams, until the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur, in a chilling tale of the consequences of getting one's heart's desire. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
