"A smart, haunting thriller with bass reverb and a pounding heart." --Jayne Anne Phillips, author of the National Book Award finalist Lark and Termite

Scott Spencer, the acclaimed author of Endless Love and A Ship Made of Paper, reaffirms his storytelling mastery with Man in the Woods--a gripping psychological thriller about a carpenter at loose ends and the crime of passion that radically reorders his world. Rudy Wurlitzer lauds Man in the Woods as a stunning work that offers "heartbreaking insights into the dark frailties of human nature," and which he calls, "a page turner from beginning to end." And New York Times bestselling author Francine Prose hails its achievement, writing, "In this brilliant novel, Scott Spencer further expands his range."
