Acclaimed author Lionel Shriver—author of the National Book Award finalist <em>So Much for That</em>, <em>The Post-Birthday World</em>, and the vivid psychological novel<em> We Need to Talk About Kevin</em>, now a major motion picture—probes the mystery of charisma in a razor-sharp new novel that teases out the intimate relationship between terrorism and cults of personality, explores what makes certain people so magnetic, and reveals the deep frustrations of feeling overshadowed by a life-of-the-party who may not even be present.<br /><br /><p>“Shriver is a master of the misanthrope. . . . [A] viciously smart writer.” —<em>Time</em><br />
