Description:

Mark and Maggie's annual drive east to visit family has gotten off to a rocky start. By the time they're on the road, it's late, a storm is brewing, and they are no longer speaking to one another. Adding to the stress, Maggie - recently mugged at gunpoint - is lately not herself, and Mark is at a loss about what to make of the stranger he calls his wife. Forced to stop for the night at a remote inn, completely without power, Maggie's paranoia reaches an all-time and terrifying high. But when Mark finds himself threatened in a dark parking lot, it's Maggie who takes control.

Quotes:

Winner of the Amanda Davis Award from McSweeney's and author of the novels Reunion and The Fates Will Find Their Way, Pittard now brings us the story of a young married couple, Mark and Maggie, on a road trip gone wrong. Maggie's recently been robbed at gun point, and by the time they stop for the night at an out-of-the-way inn (without power), the two aren't even speaking to one another. Frederick Barthelme calls it 'a positively Hitchcockian misadventure.', The Millions

The setup of Pittard's third novel is a simple and effective one: a cross-country journey in which an already-frayed marriage is pushed to its limit, even as the landscape through which the characters travel turns increasingly ominous...there's plenty of moodiness and societal commentary to be found in Pittard's taut novel., Kirkus

Listen to Me is the sort of novel you want to read in one sitting: suspenseful, unsettling, and beautifully written. Hannah Pittard goes into one couple's dark night of the soul with surprising charm and wit, but also with a fierce and intelligent honesty., Dean Bakopoulos, , Author of Summerlong

Hannah Pittard's got the goods. There's no doubt about it. Listen to Me has a way of making you uneasy from the get go. Maybe it's the approaching storm, the dark night, all the terrible things that might be hiding around the corner. Or maybe it's just how much the main characters, with all of their faults and scars and frustrated desires, remind us of ourselves. Regardless, this is a psychologically complex, addictive, and quick moving read. I didn't want it to end!, M.O. Walsh, , Author of New York Times bestselling novel My Sunshine Away

In Listen to Me, Hannah Pittard takes the reader on a young married couple's chilling road trip. The dangers and mishaps of the physical journey provide enormous suspense but still greater are all the fears each houses within. Pittard is a gifted writer with an excellent eye for the intricate details that shape a relationship., Jill McCorkle, , Author of Life After Life
