Portrait of a Psychopath as a Young Woman by Edward Lee and Elizabeth Steffen
She shackles them to the bed, and
she glues their eyes closed.
She punctures their eardrums.
She sews their lips shut.
They can't move. They can't see or hear.
They can't scream.
All they can do is feel.
And with her tools—her scalpels and needles,
her bonesaws and her knives—
She gives them a lot to feel…
SHE IS UTTERLY BEAUTIFUL, AND UTTERLY INSANE.
“The novel that American Psycho should have been... brutal, break-neck, and very real. An astonishing, gruesome, feminist thriller…” —DOUGLAS CLEGG, author of Goat Dance, Breeder, and Neverland
“The most disturbing book I’ve ever read.” —Necro Publications
