Description:

A true story of obsessive love turning to obsessive hate, Give Me Everything You Have chronicles the author's strange and harrowing ordeal at the hands of a former student, a self-styled verbal terrorist, who began trying, in her words, to 'ruin him.' Hate mail, online postings, and public accusations of plagiarism and sexual misconduct were her weapons of choice and, as with more conventional terrorist weapons, proved remarkably difficult to combat. James Lasdun's account, while terrifying, is told with compassion and humor, and brilliantly succeeds in turning a highly personal story into a profound meditation on subjects as varied as madness, race, Middle East politics, and the meaning of honor and reputation in the Internet age.

Quotes:

One of the 'Most Anticipated: The Great Second-Half 2012 Book Preview' titles., The Millions

Starred Review. This subtle, compassionate take on the subject is rife with insights into the current cyberculture's cult of anonymity, as well as the power, failure, and magic of writing., Publishers Weekly

James Lasdun's Give Me Everything You Have is an autobiographical work, rare, beautiful, bitter, and profoundly accepting of his own experience: a former female student stalks him viciously for years. The story Lasdun tells is applicable to all human experience., Paula Fox

A horrifying cautionary tale that reveals the vast dimensions of our vulnerability in the cyber age., Kirkus

Here is a chilling account of what it is to experience 'verbal terrorism' in the age of email and the Internet - a riveting memoir of James Lasdun's nightmare experience of having been stalked for five years by a deranged former student who is also a virulent anti-Semite. This must be the most informative, the most insightful, and the most beautifully written of any account from the victim's perspective of what has come to be called 'cyberbullying.', Joyce Carol Oates, , Author of Black Dahlia & White Rose
