Publisher Description

A taut, psychological mind-bender from the bestselling author of I’m Thinking of Ending Things.

We don’t get visitors. Not out here. We never have.

In Iain Reid’s second haunting, philosophical puzzle of a novel, set in the near-future, Junior and Henrietta live a comfortable, solitary life on their farm, far from the city lights, but in close quarters with each other. One day, a stranger from the city arrives with alarming news: Junior has been randomly selected to travel far away from the farm...very far away. The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Henrietta won't have a chance to miss him, because she won't be left alone—not even for a moment. Henrietta will have company. Familiar company.

Told in Reid’s sharp and evocative style, Foe examines the nature of domestic relationships, self-determination, and what it means to be (or not to be) a person. An eerily entrancing page-turner, it churns with unease and suspense from the first words to its shocking finale.

"Different in a good way. Narration was well done, exaggerated his tone of voice to match characters which only increased my unease. I read “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” which got me to choose this book. I am glad I listened to it because it was even more surreal. Hearing the words out loud made them even more uncomfortable. Trust, security and freedom was eroding without you even realizing it. Our desire for making things easier has unknowable consequences."

  • “I couldn’t put it down. It infected my dreams. A creepy and brilliant book.”

    — Zoe Whittall, author of The Best Kind of People
  • “Reid builds to a deeply unsettling climax. As much a surgical dissection of what makes a marriage as an expertly paced, sparsely detailed psychological thriller, this is one to read with the lights on.”

    — Kirkus Reviews
  • “Reid proves once again that he is a master of atmosphere and suspense. Readers won’t be able to put this one down.”

    — Publishers Weekly
