Overview

A deeply unsettling depiction of a mother who both resents her special needs child and covets the neighbor’s young daughter.

Millar gazes unflinchingly at the psychology of a deranged adult and their struggle to control their basest impulses. Suspenseful to the last, The Cannibal Heart could only be written by an author that was unafraid of asking the most unsettling of questions and peering into the darkest cravings of the human soul.
