Now a major motion picture by Lynne Ramsay, starring Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly,Lionel Shriver’s resonant story of a mother’s unsettling quest to understandher teenage son’s deadly violence, her own ambivalence toward motherhood, andthe explosive link between them reverberates with the haunting power of highhopes shattered by dark realities. Like Shriver’s charged and incisive laternovels, including <em>So Much for That </em>and <em>The Post-Birthday World</em>, <em>We Need to Talk About Kevin </em>isa piercing, unforgettable, and penetrating exploration of violence, familyties, and responsibility, a book that the <em>Boston Globe</em> describes as“sometimes searing . . . [and] impossible to put down.”
