"An enthralling new novel from the author of Carnality explores how hard it is to free yourself from a toxic relationship, through the unhinged twists of one woman's story. A woman arrives in Florence, overwhelmed by the strange, warm city so different from her home. Amidst the Renaissance architecture and amorous couples, she finds an unexpected love of her own. With his dark, ugly looks, people might stop and stare, wondering what someone like her was doing with someone like him. But he's the Mickey to her Minnie, and she can fix him-they can fix each other. She feels bound to him, body and soul. It's not long before the lying starts. Other women have begun to notice him, and she spirals into paranoia. Soon they're both cheating and lashing out, and she becomes more and more convinced he's not merely a violent man: there's a demon inside him, and inside her too. Their grip on each other is so strong, it might be impossible to break, even after she puts an ocean between them, following another man to New Orleans. Heady, unsettling, and darkly funny with its dead-on descriptions of codependent and abusive relationships, The Devil's Grip takes us on a breathless journey with the shadow selves we can't escape"--… (more)
