Summary:"A passionate, elegant, ruthless story." -Iris Murdoch Damage is the
gripping story of a man's desperate obsession and scandalous love
affair. He is a man who appears to have everything: wealth, a
beautiful wife and children, and a prestigious political career in
Parliament. But his life lacks passion, and his aching emptiness
drives him to an all-consuming, and ultimately catastrophic,
relationship with his son's fiancée. Chilling and brilliant, Damage
is a masterpiece-a daring look at the dangers of obsession and the
depth of its shattering consequences. "To read this tale of mutual
obsession is like being abducted. Josephine Hart has managed to
create a portrait of psychological and erotic obsession that is so
compelling as, for a brief moment, to suck all the oxygen out of the
air." -Los Angeles Times "A taut, sinister tale of erotic obsession."
-Vanity Fair "Damage is a masterpiece." -The Washington Post "The
violent dreamscape of Damage stayed with me long after I closed the
book. Did I dream it? Did I live it? My very uncertainty tells me I
have read something rare." -Erica Jong, author of Fear of Flying
Josephine Hart's international bestselling novels include Damage,
Sin, Oblivion, and The Truth About Love. Born and raised in Ireland,
she has also produced several successful plays in London's West End.
Prior to becoming a writer, Hart worked in publishing and established
the Gallery Poets and West End Poetry Hour. She lives in London.
