Laura Sims is the author of four books of poetry, and LOOKER is her debut novel. She lives in Brooklyn.
This intense, gripping first novel from Laura Sims shoehorns us into a gathering disquiet and sense of dread, heightened at every turn by our sympathetic understanding of her relentlessly unraveling protagonist. The precise, observant writing slips through the skin without ever calling attention to itself -- Peter Straub, author of A Dark Matter and Interior Darkness With an agile precision reminiscent of Lydia Davis, Laura Sims captures the obsessiveness of a woman who unravels after the collapse of her marriage. A taut, gripping portrait, all the more sinister for its elegance -- Leni Zumas, author of RED CLOCKS
