"Complex and disturbing... Envy is a masterfully constructed, insightful novel of psychosexual suspense that explores the destructive power of loss, betrayal, guilt and envy...an engaging, beautifully written story."
- The Boston Globe

“A compelling, beautifully written, well-constructed look at family problems that initially might seem insurmountable....Harrison is a truly gifted writer.”
- Deseret Morning News

"The characters, their conflicts and their conversations do seem real, and their story, however improbable, will keep you turning the pages."
- Newsday

“Her ability to train an unflinching eye on some of the more frightening aspects of eroticism and the human psyche, combined with her uncommon wisdom, distinguishes her as one of the finest and most fearless storytellers writing today.”
BookForum

Envy is full of Harrison’s astute, often mordant powers of physical and psychological observation...the fact is that Kathryn Harrison is one of our more earnestly impassioned and intellectually engaging players. Long may she run.”
Elle magazine

Will has a good sex life–with the woman he married. So why then is he increasingly plagued by violent erotic fantasies that, were they to break out of his imagination and into the real world, have the power to destroy not only his family but his career? He’s about to lose his grip when he attends a college reunion and there discovers evidence of a past sexual betrayal, one serious enough that it threatens to overpower the present, even as it offers a key to Will’s dangerous obsessions.

Hypnotic, beautifully written, this mesmerizing novel by “an extremely gifted writer” (San Francisco Chronicle) explores the corrosive effect of evil–and how painful psychological truths long buried within a family can corrupt the present and, through courage and understanding, lead to healing and renewal. “Like Scheherezade in the grip of a fever dream, Kathryn Harrison . . . has written one of those rare books, in language of unparalleled beauty, that affirm the holiness of life,” said Shirley Ann Grau, about Poison. And the same can be said about Envy.
