A young woman pretends to be someone she isn't in this stunning novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Girls

Summer is coming to a close on Long Island, and Alex is no longer welcome...

One misstep at a dinner party and the older man she's been staying with dismisses her with a ride to the train station and a ticket back to the city. With few resources, but a gift for navigating the desires of others, Alex stays on the island. She drifts like a ghost through the gated driveways and sun-blasted dunes of a rarefied world, trailing destruction in her wake.

Taut, sensual and impossible to look away from, The Guest captures the latent heat and potential danger of a summer that could go either way for a young woman teetering on the edge.


'Taut, beautiful and savage' GUARDIAN

'So deft, with an undercurrent of unease' PANDORA SYKES

'Stunning . . . thrilling . . . a spectacular achievement' THE TIMES

'Cline's talent at uncovering the seedy and somehow bringing it to beautiful light is brilliant'

'Something about Cline's intimate tone, her talent for conjuring the feeling of being alive, is entirely and uniquely her own' RACHEL KUSHNER

'An astonishingly gifted stylist' BRANDON TAYLOR

This novel promises to be the perfect summer read * Culture Whisper, *Books to Look Out For 2023* *
Cline on sterling form; eerie and masterful. The Guest is destined to be the status read of 2023 * Harper's Bazaar, *Best New Fiction Books to Read in 2023* *
[An] addictive read * Stylist, *Books to Look Out For 2023* *
I loved every moment of The Guest: the intensity, the control, the atmosphere, the psychological escalation, the astonishing social observation, the profound and devastating visions of the void achieved with flicks of the wrist, the way it lets nobody off the hook and yet is not without deep humanity * Sam Lipsyte *
