I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Front Cover
Text Publishing Company, Jun 30, 2016 - Horror tales - 214 pages
In this deeply scary and intensely unnerving debut novel, Jake and a woman known only as The Girlfriend are on a drive to visit his parents at their secluded farm. But when Jake leaves The Girlfriend stranded at an abandoned high school, what follows is a twisted unravelling of the darkest unease, an exploration into psychological frailty and an ending as suspenseful as The Usual Suspects and as haunting as any Stephen King novel. Written with the spare yet haunting prose so effective in the novels of Jos Saramago and Michel Faber.
