A haunting tale of desire, death, and the power of the past.
Anthony is a British journalist whose American wife, Lucy, has suddenly died. Immersed in grief, he becomes obsessed with her youth and her life before they met. To satisfy his desperate need to uncover all the details of her previous existence, Anthony travels to a remote part of the Nevada desert to meet Lucy's first husband, who retained an emotional hold over her that endured even as Anthony's and Lucy's marriage grew increasingly passionate. The eerie, devastating encounter between the two men is the beginning of a journey that will take Anthony to the edge of madness, to a place where he is never far from the woman he loves.
Thanksgiving is a dark and riveting work, an unsparing yet compassionate portrait of a man trapped in emotional turmoil. A brilliant departure for Michael Dibdin, it is certain to be his most widely read book yet.
