Andrea Kleine

Calf

€ 26.95


`The year was 1981. The US was entering a deep recession, Russia was our enemy, and John Hinckley, Jr.`s assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan shocked the nation. It was also the year author Andrea Kleine learned her close childhood friend hadbeen violently murdered by her socialite mother, Leslie DeVeau. Both events took place in Washington, DC. Hinckley and Deveau were both sent to St. Elizabeth`s hospital, guilty by reason of insanity. It was there that they met, and later became lovers. These two real-life, and ultimately converging events inspired Klein`s jaw-dropping, spine-tingling novel, CALF. Made up of dual narratives and told over the course of one year, Kleine`s account follows a fictionalized John Hinkley in the lead-up to the assassination attempt, and Tammy, older sister to Steffi, the best friend of DeVeau`s daughter, Kirin. Part Are You There God, It`s Me Margaret and part Taxi Driver, this creepy, unsettling, and absolutely addictive novel shines a light on two terrible events, providing an unflinching depiction of violence, both intimate and sensational. `-
