“A passionate, elegant, ruthless story.” —Iris Murdoch

Damage is the gripping story of a man’s desperate obsession and scandalous love affair. He is a man who appears to have everything: wealth, a beautiful wife and children, and a prestigious political career in Parliament. But his life lacks passion, and his aching emptiness drives him to an all-consuming, and ultimately catastrophic, relationship with his son’s fiancée.

Chilling and brilliant, Damage is a New York Times–bestselling masterpiece—a daring look at the dangers of obsession and the depth of its shattering consequences.
