Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Isabel is the troubled daughter of charismatic but reckless parents who hastily wed, divorced just as fast, and distanced themselves from each other-and their child. Left to her grandparents care, Isabel longs for her remote, glamorous mother and for a father who is a fading memory. Unable to control her agony, Isabel rebels in perverse and dangerous ways. A captivating novel that gives new meaning to Freuds “family romance,” Thicker Than Water vividly illuminates the fragile line between love and the darker sides of passion.

Synopsis:

This extraordinary first novel about a daughter's passionate struggle to free herself from mother love has been called "truly a brilliant book, flawless on every page, tragic and tough and forgiving (Stephanie Vaughn, author of "Sweet Talk").

About the Author

Kathryn Harrison's novels include Thicker than Water and Exposure, both New York Times Notable Books, and Poison, called "powerful and hypnotic" by The New York Times and "a masterpiece" by Lucy Grealy. Harrison lives in New York.
