Damage Synopsis

A 2013 World Book Night selection.

Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.' Damage, Josephine Hart's debut novel, an international bestseller, filmed with Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche, now takes its proper place as a Virago Modern Classic. Here is one of the most chilling explorations of physical passion and dark, obsessive love ever written.

Damage Press Reviews

'A remarkable first novel of awesome accomplishment and quite startling psychological insight' Ruth Rendell

 

'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

'The effect is powerful: here is naked obsession, sulphurous, total, scarcely possible to live with.' -- Financial Times
