On the surface of things Nadia Orsini's life appears comfortable and unremarkable - Ivy League educated, happily married to a doctor, a mother of three, and a moderately successful photographer. But not all is as it seems. Nadia has been telling lies. Nobody, not even her family, knows about her past, her dark dealings with a U.S. senator, or the scandal she was caught up in surrounding his young son. Then, Nadia receives a disturbing package in the mail and her mask threatens to disintegrate, exposing a horrifying secret. She realizes someone is spying on her, has broken in to her studio and rummaged through her hidden safe. If she can't stop them, she will lose her husband, family, suburban home - and the precarious hold on her own singular identity. Meanwhile, from a prison cell in the mountains, a convicted felon named Christopher Benedict is hatching a plot. The leader of a shadowy group of Aktionists, he writes daily to a woman known only as Jenny X. Lisa Dierbeck's startling first novel, One Pill Makes You Smaller, gave an unflinching, raw account of a relationship between a charismatic adult man and an underage girl. Set in the gritty art world of the 70s, its surprising humor, honesty and eroticism drew acclaim from numerous publications, including The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, O (the Oprah magazine), Publisher's Weekly and The New York Times Book Review, which named it a Notable Book of 2003.

    " Good book but could of had a better ending. "

    " I kept waiting for it to get good, but it just didn't. I didn't know what aktionists were, so I looked it up--twice. I still don't really know what they are and what they did and why. I found the characters very shallow and the storyline just did not make any sense to me. "

    " This book was an excellent read. It was captivating from beginning to end. The stories of the main characters are really riveting and mysterious and it keeps you guessing from beginning to end. I found it gripping. Highly recommend. "

    " I kept thinking something more sinister would happen to Jenny. The ending almost makes you believe that there should be a sequel. I don't think it is really over. "
