Love Creeps: A Novel

'“Inventive . . . hilarious . . . [Filipacchi’s] style is reminiscent in certain ways of Muriel Spark. It’s brisk, witty, knowing, mischievous . . . Love Creeps is a rare treat. It’s intelligent, and perceptive about the slippery nature of desire. And it’s extraordinarily funny.” —The Boston Globe“[Filipacchi’s] writing is both humorous and sharp, but it’s also incredibly insightful: in telling the story of these three strange people, she makes piercing observations about human nature and seemingly inexplicable behavior. Brilliant.” —Booklist, starred review“A surreal comedy of manners that’s also a surprisingly penetrating work of psychological fiction.” —Kirkus Reviews   “A fast-moving surrealistic sex farce about fear, seduction and stalking in Manhattan—a place where everybody is spying on everybody else—that’s part suspense comedy and part philosophical treatise on the neurosis of love. This is, by far, Amanda Filipacchi's funniest and most accomplished novel.” —Bret Easton Ellis“Whimsical and subversive, Love Creeps takes the hot, tragic issues of our day (stalking, child abuse) and cools them down to wry comedy. The result is both shocking and philosophical.” —Edmund White“Filipacchi has such an original voice and this book is her most hilarious and thought-provoking yet—entertainingly complex!” —Tama Janowitz“With a flair for delightfully silly dialogue, Filipacchi's third novel portrays romance as the tricky, prickly game that it is.” —The Village Voice   '
