Publisher Description

Antonya Nelson is known for her razor-sharp depictions of

contemporary family life in all of its sometimes sad, sometimes

hilarious complexity. Her latest novel has roots in her own youth in

Wichita, in the neighborhood stalked by the serial killer known as BTK

(Bind, Torture, and Kill). A story of wayward love and lost memory, of

public and private lives twisting out of control, Bound is Nelson's most accomplished and emotionally riveting work.

Catherine

and Oliver, young wife and older entrepreneurial husband, are

negotiating their difference in age and a plethora of well-concealed

secrets. Oliver, now in his sixties, is a serial adulterer and has just

fallen giddily in love yet again. Catherine, seemingly placid and

content, has ghosts of a past she scarcely remembers. When Catherine's

long-forgotten high school friend dies and leaves Catherine the guardian

of her teenage daughter, that past comes rushing back. As Oliver

manages his new love, and Catherine her new charge and darker past,

local news reports turn up the volume on a serial killer who has

reappeared after years of quiet.

In a time of hauntings and new

revelations, Nelson's characters grapple with their public and private

obligations, continually choosing between the suppression or indulgence

of wild desires. Which way they turn, and what balance they find, may

only be determined by those who love them most.
