A Lonely Girl Is a Dangerous Thing

Author(s): Jessie Tu

Contemporary Fiction | Top Ten This Week | Booksellers' Choice Spring Guide

Growing up is always hard, but especially when so many think you're a washed-up has-been at twenty-two. Jena Lin plays the violin. She was once a child prodigy and now uses sex to fill the void left by fame. She's struggling a little. Her professional life comprises rehearsals, concerts, auditions and relentless practice; her personal life is spent managing the demands of her strict family and creative friends, and hooking up. And then she meets Mark - much older and worldly-wise - who consumes her. But at what cost to her dreams?


A Lonely Girl is a Dangerous Thing explores female desire and the consequences of wanting too much and never getting it. It is about the awkwardness and pain of being human in an increasingly dislocated world - and how, in spite of all this, we still try to become the person we want to be.
