“We continue to love thrillers and especially love this one. In Pittard’s unconventional novel, a couple on a road trip deal with raging storms and their own fraying marriage. Appropriately tense and doomy.” —Pamela Paul, editor of The New York Times Book Review


A page-turning modern gothic about a marriage and road trip gone hauntingly awry

A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice

"Pittard deserves the attention of anyone in search of today's best fiction." -- Washington Post

"Revelatory." -- The New Yorker

" Listen to Me] gripped me completely and even gave me nightmares, which is high praise in my book." -- Chicago Tribune

Mark and Maggie's annual drive east to visit family has gotten off to a rocky start. By the time they're on the road, it's late, a storm is brewing, and they are no longer speaking to each other. Adding to the stress, Maggie--recently mugged at gunpoint--is lately not herself, and Mark is at a loss about what to make of the stranger he calls his wife. When the couple is forced to stop for the night at a remote inn completely without power, Maggie's paranoia reaches an all-time and terrifying high. But as Mark finds himself threatened in a dark parking lot, it's Maggie who takes control.

"Pittard proves herself a master of ordinary suspense." -- New York Times

"Listen to Me elides so many genres that it's Houdini-like, bursting through constraints. It moves between its two characters' inner lives as effortlessly as an Olympic swimmer strokes through water." -- Ann Beattie, Paris Review blog

"A psychologically complex, addictive, and quick-moving read. I didn't want it to end " -- M.O. Walsh, author of New York Times best-selling novel My Sunshine Away
